SPROUTS Garden Program 19-20

Like to get your hands dirty?  

Sprouts needs Parent volunteers to help teach the  6 scripted lessons on the life cycle of a plant throughout the year for your class in our Garden Beds.  Come to our first orientation meeting on Friday Sept 6 @9 am in the science room to learn about how you can be involved in SPROUTS. No experience necessary!  In fact, most people are quick to admit they are good at killing plants.  What a better opportunity to grow your gardening knowledge & skills right along with our students!!  Only with volunteers can we run the gardening lesson cycle for each class at Hacienda.  THIS IS A K-5 PROGRAM.

More about Sprouts:

“Sprouts” is Hacienda’s community of volunteer parents and grandparents who connect students to the natural world through gardening. Gardening provides a hands-on approach to science. By working with the soil and the plants, students experience and connect with the cycles of nature. Harvesting and eating the fruits of the garden allows students to experience the joy of growing their own food and tasting fresh produce. Through gardening, students learn about ecology, botany, horticulture, nutrition, earth science and more.

At Hacienda, Sprouts volunteers work with students and teachers in the class garden and with garden-related projects. Sprouts works to support and assist the garden parent with gardening education, curriculum, and activities. Sprouts works to obtain seeds, compost, pots, potting soil, garden gloves and more through donations, grants, and fundraisers, such as plant sales.
