Spring Break for students but not for the greenhouse and gardens.

As of today, we are officially on Spring Break.  Luckily, I live 7 minutes from the school and no out of town plans so I can keep the watering going in the greenhouse and raised beds.  I will feel the hurt of loosing 600 helpers at any given moment that I have at my disposal !  The kids planted potatoes and wrapped up planting some more starter plants in the greenhouse .
We also set our plant sale date for April 29th and 30th.  This will be our 2nd annual school plant sale.  We also have two other events where we will load up our plants.  We are invited to our community's Health Fair that is sponsored by one of our local hospitals.  We will set up a booth of our plants and the students will also do cooking demonstrations for the crowd.  The event is held in our town's university's indoor stadium and attracts thousands of  visitors.  We will also participate in our community's Earth Day celebration. Again, we will set up a plant sale booth and our students will display projects from our recycle art fair.  BUSY TIME OF THE YEAR !

Jim Long's blog linked to your blog. I am so happy I found it! I love this idea! Grow little gardeners, grow! You are saving money when you eat your own food, and saving money on gas (think of all the fuel that is used to get tasteless vegetables -because they are picked before they are ripe -from South America to Arkansas!) This is so much better for the planet and for you!!
