Gardening Club Brings New Life To The School


The new Gardening Club is bringing new life to the school by growing herbs, flowers and vegetables in planters that the group constructed in the courtyard.

The club, which started last February, is very popular, with about 15 active members.

Nicolle Berthi, a founding mother of this club, said that throughout their meetings they teach their members how to garden, water and more.

Last year the club raised over $1,000 from a Mother’s Day plant sale. This year they are selling gardening-themed hoodies, shirts and crewnecks. See Mr. Martinez in F217 if you want to make a purchase.

The club was a “spur of the moment idea” said Celia Williams, a founding mother of the club.

Vice President Kaylina Jones said she has always loved gardening.

“I have liked gardening ever since I was a kid, I used to do it with my grandma a lot,” she said.

The gardening club is always accepting new members. Join the Google Classroom with the code pz7g2md if you’d like to learn more.

“And even if you don’t like worms and all that stuff that comes with gardening, it’s still a really fun opportunity…no matter who you are you can join,” Jones said.
