UC Master Gardener helps Redlands kids find best veggie varieties for school garden

As part of their school curriculum, students at Grove Charter School in Redlands are expected to grow their own produce and sell it at the school’s weekly farmers market. The school’s garden land has grown to about 3 acres, and recently the students and teachers felt they needed some advice on what to grow. UC Master Gardener Cathryn Oltman stepped up to the plate, joining the school’s Agriculture Advisory Council. She helped the school develop a list of winter vegetables that are highly tolerant of pests and would be relatively easy for students to grow. For each suggested crop, she included information on planting times, growth patterns, and the plant’s water and sunlight needs. Cathryn has been instrumental in the success of the school’s winter garden and helping the students get the most out of their crops.
