Anne at Villa Calleguas Apartments, teaching participating residents about self-watering container gardening at an in-person Learn & Grow Educational Series event #TeachEverywhereGrowAnywhere #FoodSecurityIsFreedom learn-and-grow.org

I (Anne) conducted an in-person Learn & Grow event with the residents of Villa Calleguas Apartments last week, leaving the participating residents with their own self-watering containers for their patios and/or front porches. Stopped by today to drop off organic bug and anti-mildew sprays, and check in. There are wild animals that will eat the plants, so some folks made their own "critter collars" like ours. Look at the leaves on the #mustardgreens! The #eggplant and, I think, #stevia are also getting lush, and they've only been planted for a week #TeachEverywhereGrowAnywhere #FoodSecurityIsFreedom learn-and-grow.org

This # watermelon growing vertically on a frame in its self-watering container in the Learn & Grow test garden is starting to bend the frame over due to its weight. We're letting the reservoir refill tube serve double duty and anchor the wire frame so it doesn't go totally over. My, but this melon is getting big. Maybe because we fertilized all the containers with organic bat guano a couple of weeks ago and now this established vine has the fuel to invest in making melons. We can't wait to harvest and eat it! #TeachEverywhereGrowAnywhere #FoodSecurityIsFreedom learn-and-grow.org

#potatoes for food and #dianthus to atttact pollinators to the Learn & Grow test garden, growing in a self-watering container made from inexpensive materials, and which conserves water. This container, like most of the others in our test garden, is 4 years old, has lived at 4 different locations in that time, and has survived every move. This container has been producing enough potatoes for several meals once every 60 to 75 days for about 2 years #TeachEverywhereGrowAnywhere #FoodSecurityIsFreedom learn-and-grow.org
