GARDEN UPDATE: This year we have received 4 grants to help completely transform the GCS student "farm". Special thanks to Sustainable Tompkins, Ithaca Rotary, NYS Agriculture in the Classroom, and Clean Air - Cool Planet Inc for the funding to make the changes and help sustain garden activities for years to come and also to Mark Perosio for donating wood. Also, special thanks to Mr. Wiech and Ms. Fitzgerald for helping with the hoop house and garden projects. Updated: Groton Rotary also supplied us with a sweet water barrel!Students (and Mrs. Hume) get ready to plant melons in pots inside of the hoop house.
Preparing the tomato bed.
Approximately 10 tomato plants were transplanted from seeds started in the classroom. Check this week's Groton Independent for an article about the farm.
