After serving a successful all MI-sourced lunch last week, the Farm to School Program is switching gears and focusing efforts on our spring season in the Creekside Kitchen Classroom and Greenhouse.
During the next couple of weeks, the Farm to School Coordinators will be sitting down and pouring over seed catalogues dreaming of planting seeds and growing minds. Beginning in mid-March, we will clean and organize the greenhouse and prepare for students to begin seed sowing for our annual Spring Plant Sale. During this time, students will learn about seed germinating, transplanting, soil, and optimum growing conditions all while they grow hundreds of plants from seed for the Spring Plant Sale Fundraiser.
If you would like to help with this process, learn more about our Farm to School Program or are a returning volunteer, we would love your help and support. Please join us on Tuesday, March 6th from 3-4pm in the Creekside Kitchen Classroom, Room 211, Creekside Intermediate School for a volunteer informational meeting. Please RSVP here.
