The dates for the 2023 Club Green Thumb are set! Teachers will email the information to families. It will also be sent home in Mrs. Hughes' weekly SMORE. Information about the 2023 club can also be found by clicking on this link: Club Green Thumb 2023
Last year's garden was one of our best yet! We are looking forward to continuing the trend this year!
While the club ends in December, the garden will continue to produce during the remainder of the school year! Members are welcome to ask Mrs. Thiebeau for the vegetables as they reach maturity. Look for broccoli and cauliflower in January!
Last year, students geminated seeds for the garden and for planters they took home. Succulents were planted pots decorated by club members. Cuttings from plants were re-rooted and sent home to continue to grow hydroponically or to be transfered to a pot with soil. Our solar powered hydroponic tower garden was not as successful as we had hoped. We will look for ways to improve it this year.
A DonorsChoose project was created by the students to protect the garden from plant eating pests! Using this and Neem oil proved very effective. This year we are hoping to get a small storage shed to store our garden tools and supplies.
