Rock Creek Learning Garden Virtual Tour

Posted by

Even with campus closures, Learning Gardens are continuing to flourish! The Rock Creek Learning Garden is the largest Learning Garden at PCC. It comprises 3.5 acres of fruit trees, vegetables, an observation bee hive, a worm nursery, cob oven and other sustainably designed structures in a garden dotted with sculptural works of art all initiated by students at PCC. This summer, the Rock Creek Learning Garden Coordinator – Miriam Latzer has created us a virtual tour of the garden! With 9 videos total, Miriam explains gardening techniques used at Rock Creek, highlighting features, such as the Three Sisters – Corn, Squash and Beans.

Below is the first video with an introduction to the garden and a shout-out to the students who worked with Miriam this past winter to create the current crop plan. Look for weekly blog posts for the next reminder to keep watching!

With 9 videos total, Miriam shares all the working parts of the Learning Garden along with gardening techniques and her personal favorites in the garden.
