Two by two…
And that dear reader, is where you came last week to collect your special avocado tree, ordered as a fundraiser for the Kitchen Garden program. Last Thursday Terri sent over a hundred avocado trees for pick-up at the Office. Huge thanks go to Mike Skivinis of the Berry Farm, for growing, grafting and donating these trees for the fundraiser, and thanks also to Terri for the energy she puts into her role – and of course, to the students who transported them last week.
I was really impressed with how healthy and vigorous they are. I’m looking forward to getting mine into the ground and growing.
The best part about buying one of the avo trees? Watching everybody speculate about which of the saplings was most likely to grow the tallest and fruit the fastest when they came to pick the tree that they would take home. I hope I made the right choice when I selected our family’s tree!
He also thanked the Berry Farm for their generosity and ongoing support of our school.
And now after debating where to dig your big hole and plant your avo, in a year or so, you too should be enjoying this ancient Aztec delicacy, picked from your very own tree!
