What is your wish for this project?

We want to get kids interested in gardening, taking care of living things, and knowing where their food comes from.

How did it go?

Our group held a Plant Care Competition to see which class, kindergarden through sixth grade, could grow the best plant by the end of March. Each grade received a pot filled with soil and three corn seeds. The class that grew the healthiest plant by March 31 won an ice-cream party. Participants were very excited and put every effort into the competition, and they really enjoyed it. The 5th-graders won first place. More than 200 individuals participated in the competition.
