Kindergarten Students Learn the Science Behind Gardening

Thanks to a donation from the Boys & Girls Club Ms. Evitts’ Kindergarten Students at Wick Elementary are learning how to garden. Her class is using the Tower Garden, a high tech aeroponic growing system that is capable of growing up to 20 herbs, vegetables, fruits and flowers simultaneously. The Tower Garden grows plants with only water and nutrients rather than dirt. Students in Ms. Evitts class are assigned weekly responsibilities that include checking water and pH levels, and adding nutrients. The goal of the class is to host a “Salad for Seniors” event at the Romulus Senior Center once the plants mature. “This collaborative effort is a win-win for our club and the school,” said Jill Covell the Director of Boys and Girls Club for Romulus.
