Green Thumb is Growing UP!

Green Thumb Growers Guild   We will be composting food from the cafeteria, growing food for school lunches, preparing food for others using fresh veggies from local farms, and teaching and sharing with others what we learn.  Join us.  Parents and students, if you are interested in joining GTGG, please contact us at [email protected]  Leave your name and some contact info, and we will get back to you.
Green Thumb Growers Guild is a horticultural education program that meets as part of the afterschool enrichment programs at Sidney Elementary School.  Students who participate experience anything and everything having to do with growing and using plants (and fungi).  The Green Thumb Growers Guild began in October 2013 with 15 members.  We use the outdoor garden lab behind the elementary, classroom space for crafting projects, the nature trail for collecting and observing, and the greenhouse at the High School for starting seeds and experimenting.  Like the plants and gardens, we are growing as an organization.  Join us!!
