The new Greenhouse Club at Edgewater Elementary was officially underway on January 15, 2015. This program is an after school activity for Edgewater third graders. Volunteers spent the day preparing the greenhouse for the first group of students.
So far we have 40 third graders enrolled in the program and 30 on a wait list! Thursday was spent on orientation. The kids were very excited to get started!
Mrs. Finnegan led introductions and fun introductory activities. We also decorated our garden journals!
Two groups of volunteers will be at Edgewater Elementary on Mondays and Thursdays for an hour each day. On behalf of all the volunteers, we look forward to working with this great group of kids and helping them learn about gardening and nutrition.
