Carolyn took a break from watering and trimming the very full greenhouse today to spend her morning at Career Day at Loudon Elementary School.
She presented to groups of kids grades K-5 and talked about how the greenhouse operates, how we water all of our plants, and did a demonstration of how to plant plugs in a pot. She brought along various sizes of plants from the greenhouse, including a large patio pot, smaller annuals, and a vegetable 4 pack. She was able to show the kids how many different things you can create all starting from tiny plugs or seeds.
Loudon Elementary was nice enough to provide her with her own space for the series of presentations and also a catered lunch. Some other career day visitors were the Loudon Police and Miles Smith Farm, and many others. Career Day provides the kids with real life examples of the options they have for jobs when they grow up, let’s hope we had some future horticulturists to inspire today!
We’re getting closer to opening day, make sure to mark your calendars for Friday April 22nd, we’ll be ready for you!
