School Children Learn to Grow and Donate

Last year, Edible Evanston donated growing systems to elementary schools in Evanston to support their gardening curriculum. In a program where 5th graders mentored kindergartners in gardening fundamentals, Kingsley Elementary set up their grow-station in the lobby for everyone to see and was able to donate 30 tomato and pepper plants to the The Talking Farm for their seedling sale. Lincoln Elementary choose to use their art room for their grow station. Students in every class there got to check on the growth during art class and they donated over 70 plants to the farm's sale. Way to go young gardeners!
