March 30, 2015- GClub Preps for Planting Day!

 We thinned existing tomatos, peppers, cabbage, pumpkins, peas, beans and more.  Last meeting we started a lot of different plants.  We started our meeting with a quick exercise to demonstrate to the students that plants need room to grow.  This meeting we thinned them out to get ready to put them into our garden beds (the plants, not our students) on April 21, our school-wide Planting Day.
 Our school grow cart is pretty full.  We are trying this year to have enough seedlings for the youngest students to plant, leaving seed and bulbs for older students.  Smaller hands larger plantings, was a comment made to GClub in the past year. We are trying it out.
A short time before we were to dismiss a "lock down" drill was called.  Here is my wife, Christina, abandoned by our students. :) Everyone was okay.

Join us anytime during the school day on April 21st to watch our kids install the Hubbell School Garden, in 1 day!
