School Gardening

Irmo High School job training students planted kale and chard plants that started in coffee pods in their greenhouse. They made sure to carefully cut the bottom of cups before planting, and they also planted a variety of tomatoes, bell peppers, cucumbers, yellow squash, and strawberry plants. Students are excited that the golden peppers and yellow squash are one of their school colors!

Reuse Project

A.C. Moore Elementary students searched for natural items on their schoolyard and glued what was found to frames they cut from cereal boxes. Students then glued magnets to the frames so the projects can cling to their family refrigerators. What a fun way to teach others that reusing can be beautiful!
