Rooftop Garden Update

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Lots of activity in our rooftop garden these days!  We’re harvesting tomatoes and gearing up to harvest much more in the coming days, including various chiles, chard, hoja santa, epazote and more.  Thanks again to Josh Arnold for his tireless efforts…

Rooftop Action!

Exciting times on the roof at Comal.  We’re working closely with Josh Arnold, a grad student at CAL studying urban agriculture, to expand our rooftop gardening operation.  We planted a dozen boxes last year as a trial run and were pleased with the results.  This year we are quadrupling our total planting area.  The focus will be on tomatoes and chiles, but we will also have epazote, chard and hoja santa as well as a number of boxes of beneficial “habitat” plants.  The habitat plants will attract pollinators and in doing so help minimize pest activity.  Stay tuned for more updates soon – plants going in this week!
