Little Sprouts club is growing!
These fresh radishes will enhance the flavor of a salad made with the green leaf lettuce and spinach that were receaxntly harvested.
Little Sprouts, a third-grade gardening club at Floresville North Elementary School, grows and harvests vegetables. The club has been a growing tradition for four years.
In their fall garden, Little Sprouts members planted lettuce, spinach, mint, onions, and radishes. In the spring, they will expand their harvest to include some fruits, including strawberries. The students also plan to add potatoes and tomatoes in the future. They currently have 20 gardening beds and would like to enlarge the garden by adding on 20 more.
Come on out and visit the Little Sprouts garden at Floresville North Elementary. Sponsors for the club are third-grade teachers Beverly LaFrance, Pam Davis, and Sarah Bauer. Sponsors are assisted by Michelle Gauna, Sarah Rethaber, and Kelly Lane.
The club meets on Thursday afternoons from 2:45-4:30 p.m.
