Visiting the Legacy Garden

On March 23, Noe and I visited Julie Welch in the Legacy Garden. She shared a lot of background information on the Legacy Garden which was quite interesting. One thing I learned is that the gardening beds are made out of old McKeon Pavillion bleachers. Pretty cool. Also, that the Legacy Garden is a sustainable garden, not to be confused with organic. (We were called out & kindly corrected.) There are many more regulations for an organic garden like organic seeds, organic fertilizer, etc., which St. Mary's does not use. She also showed us the greenhouse which allows plants a better environment to grow.
