Awesome Experience at Solano Community Garden!
My name is Jenni Michua and I'm a freshmen at Cal State University of Los Angeles. I'm here to share with you my experience at Solano Community Garden. I pass through Solano Garden everyday because my house is just on the other side. But I had never really taken time to marvel all the great things it has to offer.
My friends and I were assigned to clear the entrance of the garden. We had to cut branches that where blocking the gate. At first I thought it would be easy but it wasn't as easy as I thought. I had difficulty trying to cut the big branches but I'm guessing it's because I'm weak.
Even though it was pretty fun. It was interesting how we were asked to separate the dry leaves to another stack. We were told that those dry leaves can still be used.
After a while we gathered up with the rest. I was very happy when I saw fresh, red, juicy strawberries on the table. And of course, I can't forget those cute little peaches. I must admit they taste very delicious! I was able to take some home and share with my family.As a result,this made me realize that it would be awesome if everyone was able to plan their own fruits and vegetables. This would definitely help our environment. Since transportation won't be necessary.
I must admit that I had fun! And I would do this again not only because I live next to it, but because it gave me the satisfaction of doing something good for our environment. And hey! I got free strawberries and peaches my favorite. What more can I ask for? I also got to enjoy nature, the fresh air, and those beautiful roses.
I hope to visit very soon..
Thank you !
