This Sunday, June 13th at the Learn & Grow Tent, Gale School students and families will be on site to talk about their project, sell their plants, and teach market goers how to plant seeds. Gale Academy Greenhouse is located in a CPS elementary school (on Jonquil & Marshfield), and provides opportunities for students and their families to experience growing their own food.
The greenhouse is used throughout the year to teach kids about growing plants, composting, and healthy eating; in the summer, students and their parents are invited to cultivate a plot of and in front of the school.
This year, there are six families working together to grow some of their own food. The greenhouse sells some of its vegetable plants, herbs, and ornamental flowers at plant sales throughout the spring and summer. We will have Gale School students and families at the tent to talk about their project, sell their plants, and teach market goers how to plant seeds.
