Remember the Cabbage patch?
No, we don’t mean the dance craze from 20 years ago or the adorable little dolls with their own birth certificates. Today, the cabbage patch in schools has a whole new meaning.
The Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program is a national program designed to teach 3rd Grade students about health, nutrition, math, science, and social studies all by the growing of colossal cabbages in their classrooms.
Offered by Bonnie Plants, they plan to delivers cabbage plants to classes around the country in the spring so that students can grow and them in their home garden or in a school community garden.
The program is designed to offer students a unique, hands-on gardening experience and comes with a lesson plan that incorporates cabbage gardening into class activities throughout the year.
Best of all, the program is free if your school orders your plants by February 1st.
Open to all traditional schools and home school families, students can enter their cabbages into a state wide contest to win a $1,000 scholarship prize for the biggest head of cabbage.
This is a great free program to educate the future gardeners of America.
You can find out more information on the Third Grade Cabbage Program at their website and sign up your school.
