Garden Bootcamp has been on the road, checking out some awesome Community Gardens in Hillsboro! We visited TriQuint Semiconductor's corporate community gardens on Sept 28 and Hillsboro's Parks and Rec Sonrise community gardens on Oct 15. We talked about winterizing raised beds and the importance of top dressing with leaves and compost to make that wonderful compost tea!
