Today we introduce our “You Healthy? Go Outside!” Evening Broadcast Series of Family Friendly Music & Earth Skills Activities with demo on how we started a new garden bed under old lawn for early season greens, potatoes and onions, as well as potted plant preparations for later season “pizza fixings” like tomatoes, peppers, cilantro. Please consider a donation if you enjoy the video lesson and would like to help keep Wolf Camp administrative staff employed through springtime.
TEMPORARY NOTE: We need 1,000 subscribers before we can live stream via YouTube from our phone in the field so PLEASE go to https://www.youtube.com/wolfcampcollege and subscribe. Again, they have a rule that we need 1,000 subscribers in order to schedule live streams from our phone or tablet. Let’s get this done quick and ask all your family and friends to subscribe as well. THANKS!
Gardening is wonderful every year, but if things get bad, you really want to be growing food. Check the internet for soil germination temperatures needed for different veggie seeds, and consider plastic over still-frosty ground to heat it up more quickly. If you don’t have garden beds prepared, start growing in pots or leaky buckets – indoors is great to start – and way easier to maintain anyway when you move them outside. Yay less weeding!
Announcements & Reminders:
– Please Launch PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Drives for your local emergency hospitals, first responders, homeless service providers and other essential care givers!
– Going outside is the healthiest way to maintain happiness while social distancing, where virus concentrations dissipate in the fresh air and get killed by ultraviolet (UV) rays, and where the sun helps us produce Vitamin D which also keeps us happy and well. Gardening is also a great way to stay healthy, and if things get tough, one of the best ways to increase your food security.
Please consider a contribution if you benefited from this video, and help us keep Wolf Camp and the Conservation College at Blue Skye Farm going during this time when we can’t run spring workshops. We’re hoping to keep administrative staff employed in advance of the summer camp season.
Thanks, and please catch live broadcasts on the Wolf Camp facebook page or via the Wolf College youtube channel live stream if we’re within wifi range starting at 6:00 PM Pacific, or view it when we post it here at 7:00 PM, until the social distancing era end or June 14, 2020, whichever comes quickest:)
