Roland Street Alley Project: Autumn Update

Jody and Mariah visited Roland Street Alley for what is likely the last time before the frost and cold weather hits. We were amazed at all the food that has been grown in such a short period of time in such a small area of space!

Crops such as cherry tomatoes, bok choy, kale, and cabbage had very successful yields. There were also native plants such as Milkweed and Spicebush that act as host plants for native insects that are VITAL to our local environment and ecosystem.

We did not get around to having the soil tested this year, since this was a concept project and we wanted to see how viable growing crops in an area like this would be. Testing your soil in Kentucky is fairly easy to do; check back for more in-depth information on how you can do this.

We're more than 25% of the way funded for the mural by Often Seen Rarely Spoken! Please consider supporting this project on GoFundMe.
