Lake Chapala Society Medicinal Plant Garden Update - May 2018

It's been 7 months since we broke ground 
at the Lake Chapala Society (LCS) Medicinal Plant Garden.

Starting with a kidney shaped, escombro (construction waste) filled pool
in the month of October was not the optimal growing time/location/condition choice,
but Mother Nature is resourceful, forgiving and resilient.

Lemon Grass

 Acelga or Swiss Chard

 Aloe Vera

An experiment in growing conditions, volunteer involvement, herb and weed
identification and medicinal plant processing and use, 
we welcome "volunteer" plants into the mix.



As this is a community garden, we found several food plants in the garden, either
planted or donated by community members.



And Mother Nature added her own contributions.

 East Garden

The Garden is divided into a sun filled West section and a more shaded East section.
As you can see we have room for more plants, so please do feel free to contribute
to this worthy cause.


Mauricio, the Lead Gardener at the LCS is usually around to accept contributions.







See you in the Garden.
