Messalonskee High School Eagle's Garden and Greenhouse Project

RSU 18 Messalonskee High School Greenhouse Garden Club held a Global Youth Service Day event with Atwood Primary School where students built raised bed gardens and taught the young students how to start their seeds for the garden.

More than 20 Greenhouse Garden Club students participated in the "Little Seedling" Eagle's Garden and Greenhouse Project where almost half of our members are part of the high school LifeSkills Classroom. Our featured student is named Caitlin. In the photo, Caitlin is assembling a raised bed with her teacher and classmates. Our Project gave Caitlin the opportunity to enrich her life by giving her more exposure to gardening. Caitlin has continued to grow string beans in the LifeSkills classroom and will be planting them in her family's garden at home. She continues to help with the plants in our classroom and has gained a further understanding a plant's needs, life cycle, and how they produce food for us to eat!

Our Club enjoyed their time of creating a garden and are excited to continue their work each year as they built their mentoring program and their new greenhouse/garden program at the high school. Thank you Sow It Forward for your support.
