Sustainable CAPE on Facebook–July 31, 2013

From Sustainable CAPE – Center for Agricultural Preservation & Education on Facebook:

“We all know vegetables love sunshine and water, but did you know they need good nutrition, just like us? Today in the Children’s Garden we dug our hands into some organic soil booster, which we learned contains delicious (to the plants!) manure, peat, humus, seaweed, worm castings, lobster shells and even beneficial bacteria called mycorrhizae. How do the plants eat? “With their roots!”, said Audrey, age 6.

Healthy soil means healthy plants– and healthy kids! Yum!”
