Over the past few months, Abby Roche, student director of Gateway Science Museum Sustainability Gardens and a community nutrition assistant for the Center for Nutrition and Activity Promotion (CNAP), has planned, planted, tended, harvested and replanted four unique raised demonstration vegetable beds. Using sustainable gardening practices and techniques including the raised beds, low-water drip irrigation, composting, integrated pest management and companion planting, Roche is steering the Gateway Gardens toward being a teaching destination for nutrition advocates, gardeners and foodies alike.
Gateway Science Museum is open Wednesday–Sunday, noon to 5 p.m., and is located at 625 Esplanade in Chico. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for children and free for museum members. For more information, please visit www.gatewayscience.org or check out our Facebook page.
