Engineering a Gardening Bed!

Greg Fripp and Whispering Roots ( had planned to install gardening beds at Omaha’s Lothrop Magnet Elementary, where Civic Nebraska runs the Community Learning Center. Then COVID-19 intervened! Rather than scrap the plans, they put the beds in the backyard of our Lothrop CLC director, Equasha Smith Gooch. All materials were donated by Whispering Roots. Thanks, Greg and team!
