SPEC in April

It's a beautiful yet chilly Friday in April. With the sun shinning brightly it's a great day to take a few photos of our Rooftop Container Garden to share.

We will be starting regular bi-monthly Rooftop work days starting this Friday from 9 to 11am. Come start seedlings with us!

Peas are growing! (Will be transplanted to a larger container)
