Thanks to Skillins Greenhouses our Campers Planted New Garden Beds

This week one class of campers learned the differences between forest humus, garden compost, and regular soils, and how to weed and prepare beds for planting.

With this knowledge they prepared a few of the fallow garden beds at Gilsland Farm in Falmouth and planted many new plants purchased with a $50.00 gift certificate kindly donated by Skillins Greenhouse.
