Students will learnabout what plants and our garden needs to thrive and produce compost through our classroomworm bins. Students will plant various seeds throughout the semester and track their growth inthe indoor grow stations. The plants will be transferred to larger pots and eventually thecommunity garden. Students will design the garden brochure that will include maps of thegarden in various seasons, information on maintenance, volunteer opportunities, distributioninformation and contact information for the caretakers. The apprenticeship will focus on building public speaking, teamwork and leadership skills. The WOW! will be a community garden partyfacilitated by the students. It will include tours of the garden, distribution of the brochures, a butterfly release, vermiculture (worm bin) activities and a plant sale. The WOW! will also be inconjunction with other programs at our middle school that are involved with the garden.
