May 24 – Amesti School Garden Bird Netting and Planting Day
Today we installed bird netting onto 5 beds and had some students help us plant on the empty beds. This is a solution, similar to what Apex Bird Control would do, will stop any birds coming to feast on the plants that are growing. Without the netting, the birds would certainly feast on these plants, and all of the hard work put into nurturing the plants would have gone to waste so it’s important to protect them.
