Come Grow with Us - Ag in the Classroom ProgramMaster Gardener George Mroch is visiting Eastview Elementary throughout the Spring as part of their Come Grow with Us, Ag in the Classroom program.

George has been planting at Eastview for about 5 years now.  A few years ago, he suggested going from just planting marigolds to doing hydroponics.  He brings in different colored lights and aquariums and infuses science into gardening.

New this year Eastview started an afterschool Garden Club lead by two teachers, Mrs. Sleider and Mrs. Nor.  When George found out, he donated supplies, seeds, and his time once again.

In the Garden Club, students learn to plant flowers, maintain and prune current plantings, learn about soils and how to fertilize it, and even plant a vegetable garden.  

The goal is to create a viable vegetable garden in the future so that students can give back to area food banks while learning this important life skill.
