The Problem

We will plant a garden at the Boys and Girls Club in Pinellas County. My wish is that the children not only learn how easy it is to grow your own healthy food but to provide an ongoing source of healthy food for the kids at the Boys and Girls Club and to beautify the area.

Our Plan

We will plant herbs and vegetable seeds. Once the seeds sprout and are big enough we will clear the plot for a garden and plant the seedlings. The children will record their observations about the garden in their journals. The class will care for the garden through the remainder of the semester and then we will turn it over to the Boys and Girls Club.
