HSCJ students recently had the opportunity to practice “no till” gardening along the East River Esplanade with Green and Blue Ecocare.

No till gardening is a method of gardening that minimizes soil disturbance, which can lead to increased soil health, water retention, and carbon sequestration.

Students used shovels, rakes, cardboard boxes, and mulch to prepare a sterile and organic soil mixture. The cardboard boxes will help to kill any existing weeds and the mulch will help to retain moisture and suppress weed growth. Once the soil is ready, students will return to plant a variety of native plants and flowers.

This project is a great example of how HSCJ students are putting their classroom learning into action. By participating in this guerrilla gardening project, students are helping to improve the environment and create a more beautiful and sustainable community.
