Thursday Feb. 18th a few of the high school garden clubbers went to Lockers for a tour and demonstration by David. He showed them how to separate and transplant small plants. They were fascinated by the fact that you could just cut off spider plant babies and take succulent leaves and just stick them in dirt. Above is a picture of some of them getting their hands dirty. Left to right are Caroline Wilm, Morgan Rudd, and Abigail Wilm. They were allowed to take their transplants home and will use them when they make their own terrariums. Was a cool visit.
