The students at Scott High School have done a wonderful job taking care of our plants in the greenhouse! We were able to grow almost all of the plants we needed for our participants. This was a big job, considering the volume of plants we needed for the program.
We distributed the plants to our individual garden and community garden participants Monday evening.
In some cases, we were
able to give them more
plants than they had
requested. Most of our participants have expressed their heartfelt appreciation
for Grow Appalachia.
We also had a basic gardening class this past week for our participants. We had wonderful participation and a lot of questions from our first time gardeners.
After the class, we asked if anyone would like to share any advice they had from their own gardening experiences. The discussions that followed were so informative. We are going to compile all of this good information and pass it on!
