I am a third grade teacher and I am creating a Garden Club at my elementary school. I love to be outside and love gardening so I hope to share my love of nature with the 3rd through 5th graders at HGES. Gardening has proven to have many positive effects on people of all ages, but especially on the young. I am hoping to encourage positive social entertainment, enhanced well being, improved dexterity, reducing anxiety, educational opportunities and relaxation and satisfaction. Some of the things I have planned for this project are: • Build a light box for windowsill growing • Sow micro greens, salad and other early veg • Chit potatoes – experiment with warmth/light/dark – bring back to school for planting in containers or plant at home if no space at school. • Make a pea propagator out of 2 liter bottles cut in half and sow sugar snap peas • Sow sunflowers in pots to take home – plant at home or return to plant in school • Herbs - learn to prick out parsley seedlings and other herbs, root cuttings of mint, and make a herb collection • Design a garden on a plate • Make labels or measuring sticks • Keep a garden journal or diary • Make slug pubs or slug guards from 2 liter bottles
