The calendar is turning.
Days are getting shorter.
School is back in session.
Time to put away those garden gloves and visions of fresh veggies until next year, right?
Not in the case of the GroMoreGood Hydroponic Garden Project. The growing, the learning, the fresh vegetables will continue through late fall and winter as the second iteration of the program brings hands-on science and STEM opportunities to the classroom.
With the goal of connecting more students to the wonders and science of hydroponic gardening, AeroGarden is helping to expand the GroMoreGood Hydroponic Garden Project now in year three.
The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation’s partnership with National Farm to School Network and the extension of the GroMoreGood Hydroponic Garden Project are part of ScottsMiracle-Gro’s enterprise-wide GroMoreGood initiative to connect 10 million children to the benefits of gardens and green spaces by 2023.
“After the success of the initial launch of the project, we’re thrilled to bring gardening, learning experiences and fresh vegetables to even more classrooms with the continuation of our partnership with National Farm to School Network,” says Tina Edwards, Brand Manager, AeroGarden. “Our hydroponic kits allow educational growing experiences to occur indoors, regardless of the time of year and harvest season.”
The schools in this year’s program span five states, including: Arizona, California, Florida, Oregon and Washington.
Just because the traditional garden season is over, students in the Hydroponic Garden Project know the growth and the GroMoreGood keep going.
