CREEC Greenhouse Youth Group report September 2017

September, 2017, just flew by at CREEC Greenhouse. We have continued to water the restoration plants. Some have not survived the transplant and will be replaced, others are very happy in their new spot under the bridge. With the rain, we will get started. CREEC has lots of Native plants to bring back our butterflies.
CREEC planted a mulberry tree a few years back across the road by a fence. Our Youth Group planted Sea Lavenders and California bee plants and some other future beautiful surprises under and around the tree. October will bringĀ  a few more! The butterflies and humming birds will love it!
Ms Iris Wesselmann, Math/Science teacher at Carquinez Middle School, Friend of CREEC, Super Teacher who bribes us with marshmallows! visited CREEC with her classes(24 and 28 students) The 24 group class potted up seedlings of basil and salvia, 5 flats of each, !60 plants in all. They understand the life of a plant, root structure, stem, and leaves.They really liked mixing the soil in the wheelbarrow! The 28 group of students potted 1 gallon pots of ash and oak trees to 5 gallon pots so they could grow bigger. Almost everyone repotted a tree or 2. They loaded the labeled transplanted beauties and put them in a shaded spot with water. Both groups were excited and enthusiastic. CREEC, the treasure under the bridge, is being found out! due to the efforts of this wonderful woman! Several of her students have completed paperwork and are finishing their community service to be a part of CREEC’s Youth Group.
