UNM Collaboration w/ American Studies 309

Students in Andrew Marcum’s Lobo Gardens class at the University of New Mexico continued their collaboration with the Youth Food Action Project in the fall of 2011 by helping YFAP and the UNM Food Corps establish a new garden while expanding an existing garden at Kirtland Elementary School.

Students participated in soil sampling, roto tilling, and mulching. They also planted garlic and lettuce at the newly expanded garden and helped to fence in and establish drip lines at this garden while planting vetch to build soil health at the brand new Kirtland garden.

Students Matt Troche and Jon Ethridge were especially engaged and took the techniques they learned from YFAP Director Richard Brandt and urban farmer Morgan Attema of East Central Ministries to their own backyards!
