MSU Students Tour H.O.P.E. Gardens

The rain didn’t keep this group from MSU’s Organic Farmer Training Program from touring our garden at Kent ISD. As we strolled through the gardens they sampled cucamelons, borage, lemon basil, and Concord grapes.

We shoveled soil from the regenerative garden to compare it with the soil outside of the garden and noticed threads of mycelium (this is a good thing) throughout the rich garden soil. The difference in soil was very apparent.


Afterward, we held a Q&A session beneath the tents and distributed seeds that had been carefully preserved and packaged by our students. These seeds are now destined to flourish in various gardens across Michigan. Isn’t that amazing?
