On Friday afternoon, students worked hard on settling the rockwool growing cubes into the plant tower. Rockwool is made from rock and sand and spun to make fibers, like cotton candy! Rockwool holds a good amount of water, holds air at all times, supplying the roots with plenty of oxygen and holds together well so won't spill.
Students planted cilantro, basil, lettuce, kale and spinach! Watch this space for updates on their growth!
Today we received the following lovely correspondence from a teacher in a transition program in an other school district.
"I am a teacher....we are looking to move out of the school setting and into the community setting withing the next couple of years. Your website is beautiful and we would like to come visit your program to get some ideas of things we can do with our program" S.B.
We are so proud!
