What To Expect
Each planting cycle begins with students opening their soil packs and seed packs, planting seeds in organic soil, bottom-watering & watching the soil absorb the water. In 2-3 days they will see dozens of seeds breaking through the soil and roots peeking out the bottom. Over the entire 7-10 day growing cycle students pet the plants with their hands (to mimic wind), spin the planters around when the greens lean toward the sun, check if the plants need water by looking closely or lifting the planter, watch the soil absorb the water through bottom-watering, and watch the roots grow through the drainage holes. At the end they cut and eat the flavorful greens they grew themselves. They can even explore the roots up close before composting or discarding the soil and starting a new planting.
