The Hive Student Garden Project by Elizabeth Gourlis, CAG Teacher

The Hive has been busy in its first month back! We are in full swing with planting flowers with our Garden Club and some of the 2nd grade classes! We are pretty curious to see the first signs of growth!

We have spread our gardening projects into classrooms with a Kitchen Scraps and a Micro-Green kit! These kits will allow teachers to start growing plants in their own classrooms via nontraditional methods, with the idea that new plants might find their way transplanted back into The Hive. We also have a Pre-K classroom that has pledged to garden in our of the garden bed. We hope to get more beds created and usable for other classrooms soon.

There was an article released recently that stated The bacteria that is found in soil may stimulate serotonin production, which makes you relaxed and happier. The bacterium appears to be a natural antidepressant in soil and has no adverse health effects. These antidepressant microbes in soil may be as easy to use as just playing in the dirt. We, of course, know but we are glad, getting dirty, is getting some good press!

We have also started composting with worms, which is also known as vermicomposting. We would love to share more on this, once we are sure the worms are thriving in their new environment.
