3rd graders plant our seedlings

This morning Pastor Jay kicked off the Social Justice Curriculum with the 3rd graders at Argonne Alternative Elementary School. Jay talked to the students about homelessness.

Then, I talked to them about our gardening project. And they helped us plant 70 packets of seeds that were donated from around the country. We'll be taking pictures of the seeds as they grow, so that the students, and those who donated the seeds will be able to watch them grow and journey to the plate of hungry folk in San Francisco.

However, in true skill share fashion, these kids already knew a lot about growing plants. Check out the different ways they've been growing plants in their classroom.

The picture on the left shows how the 3rd graders are growing plants in gel so they can watch the roots grow.

The picture on the right shows some of their plants hanging from the ceiling.

Below you'll see they're growing plants in small greenhouses.
And they have bigger greenhouses too.
