Adding that STEAM component, we now our weighing our produce yield and recording the data so we can determine total yield for the season. Students estimate their yield first then weigh it to confirm actual yield.
Interested in how your school records yield and/or plant productivity.
Photo is of some of our students participating in our summer session cooking class, another must for a school garden.
I have worked closely with schools and non-profit groups in the Los Angeles area with our Tower Garden. The Tower Garden is a great way for communities to grow produce quickly without soil, and with limited water supply. For this month only, shipping will be FREE if ordered through the link below.
These Towers can be used for a lifetime and be grown over and over again.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
We put the table under the new arbor to work, even if the gapes aren't planted yet. We auctioned off a dinner from the garden, wanted to share a glimpse of what the evening looked like. It was a magical night and a new way to consider fundraising.
Our first crop of hydroponically grown peppers was harvested in mid-July, and we had so many different kinds of salsa it was impossible to pick a winner! Getting ready for the winter crop. Very exciting stuff.
We are new to this site and are excited to connect with other school gardens to share ideas and insight how best to teach the next gardening generation. Our latest project, creating an outdoor class seating area, teachers wanted an area to have students sit while working on assignments that were garden related. Recycling bottles and cans to raise funds to purchase grapes for the arbor now. Always on the hunt for donations and funding!
