2009 - A note of thanks from the Martin Garden Club, E.R. Martin Elementary School,
We received a note of thanks for a mini-grant from Donna Jones
at the Roherstown Elementary School along with this picture of the students. Looks
like they are “growing” a lot of future gardeners.
We have awarded Minigrants to six schools. The photos above are of Lori Barbar's class (The Flower
Squad). They grew seed geraniums, these photos are from 2009. Good Work!
The Lancaster Country Day School worked with worm composting, planting seeds,
observing, measuring - and planning the garden plot.
