Garden Club Potted Tulip Project
The Garden Club community service project began in the fall when members placed tulip bulbs into repurposed milk jugs. The students taped the jugs shut, but left the tops open. Then, the club members placed the jugs on the ground so the bulbs inside would have access to rain water, but be protected from freezing while they received the necessary cold treatment. Amber Y. and Loan W. worked to plant the bulbs in 6” pots so they can be forced to bloom indoors over a 5 week process. The club members planned to wrap the pots in pretty Easter foil after returning from Spring Break and deliver them to a local nursing home, but instead, the plants are bringing joy throughout Grier school!
