From planting to watching their seedlings grow to helping others, one thing is clear: the garden club is a huge success! Watch as students plant and prepare for their peas to shoot and climb, an outdoor lesson that puts hands into the soil and brings together measurement skills, environmental science, biology, and, of course, fun!

P.S. 15 - How Does Your Garden Club Grow? from Change for Kids on Vimeo.
The garden club was founded by second grade teacher Sarah Strong, Kindergarten teacher Ashley Mendolina, and two amazing PTA members. The garden they’ve started in the planters behind the school features flowers and edibles, planted and maintained by students. The garden also serves as a hands-on learning space that will bring science, math, and nutrition lessons to life.
