Bonnie Cabbage Growing Contest

Huge shout out and congratulations to BEN BROWN, Grade 4, for winning Bonnie Cabbage growing contest for Vermont.

Last year the 3rd graders were given seedlings provided by Bonnie Plants ( as one of their promotions of showing kids how to grow their own food and to become gardeners.

The class discussed the process of organic and chemical fertilizer and we had two cabbages that were in the school garden for the purpose of seeing how the effects of certain substances would enhance growing. The organic one was chomped down by a critter followed by our "growing really well" fertilized one. A lot was learned. One, we need a fence and two, you are what you eat, which lead to more composting discussions and the use of organic materials.

The students took them home to nurture and grow over the summer with a certain deadline for harvesting. The contest was to see who could grow the largest cabbage in their state. According to Ben's parents and family, he babied his cabbage and took wonderful care to get it to a great size this fall! Ben was the ultimate winner for the state of Vermont and he won a $1000 scholarship!

Inclement Weather: We will be waiting as long as possible for canceling/rescheduling practices and games due to inclement weather, unless school is closed. If school is closed, all after-school activities are canceled. Weather can be mis-predicted or changed by the hour, so we really want to wait it out as long as we can. Rescheduling/moving practices and games is very challenging given our one gym.
