Greenhouse Tour 2022! Not every class has time to get to the greenhouse so we're bring the greenhouse to the classes. Every few days new classes volunteer to care for the greenhouse seedlings on their starter cart before they move to another classroom (and eventually to the greenhouse). Thank you to Mrs Hamilton's class for being first! The cart has grow lights, seed heaters, water basins. Everything the seeds need to survive on their journey. As you can see the seedlings are dong really great so far and most of them have already popped up and are growing!
800 seedlings were started today for the Greenhouse, including 100 lettuce plants that were planted last week to go in the hydroponic unit and have already sprouted. Updates are almost complete in the greenhouse itself as spring does its best to show up. Check back to see how our veggies and flower seedlings are doing soon.
5th grade had so much fun experimenting with chemical reactions today! #Elephanttoothpaste

In Greenhouse news. We have an irrigation system! Still too cold to test it out but it the majority of the plumbing is done. The sprinklers are ready to be installed, the aquamat system is hooked up, the hydroponic system is ready to be filled. All we need is some warmer weather. We even had most of our winter test plants survive and are slowly getting larger with the warmer weather. Once the ground thaws we can get the outdoor gardens drip irrigation system pipes in the ground. Looking to start this years seedlings in the next few weeks and we hope to have a very green greenhouse in the near future.

Bulldog Book Clubbers had fun crafting bookmarks for some wickedly good books!
We were asked if we can grow lettuce in the school greenhouse for school lunches like we do in the small hydroponic growers in the Tech and Family Consumer Science classes. Sure! This 20' long three tube hydroponic grower could potentially grow up to 90 lettuce plants every 6-8 weeks and provide fresh veggies as well as a great learning tool for our students. Next on deck in the greenhouse is the irrigation system that wasn't able to be installed due to covid. Hoping all the improvements are done for the warmer weather but we are hoping to have a very green greenhouse this spring.
4th Grade Science students had a chance to be paleontologists today while extracting chocolate chips out of cookies using toothpicks. Fun was had by all!
