Eliot-Hine’s new GrowLab, indoor garden, was funded as part of an OSSE Farm Field Trip Grant. The purpose of this grant is to increase the number of District students who visit local farms. Students helped plant the milkweed seeds, water them consistently, and track their progress. Then in April,  6th and 7th grade students will take a field trip to Hard Bargain Farm in Accokeek, MD. Also as a part of the grant, Eliot-Hine’s required follow-up activity will be installing a pollinator garden. Everyone is invited to this April 1st Pollinator Garden Installation event. Join Eliot-Hine as they continue to infuse science and sustainability in fun and productive ways!
