Forest Green’s Garden Club Serves Up Smoothies

Forest Green Grow Tower Forest Green Smoothies Green Smoothy

We are very fortunate to have two garden towers in our school.  We are growing all kinds of delicious green vegetables and herbs, including broccoli, kale, swiss chard, lettuce, basil, peppers, and tomatoes.  Our Garden Club meets weekly to take care of the towers, including checking pH levels, adding water, and trimming the roots.  Students at Forest Green were very fortunate to sample a green smoothie with harvested vegetables from the garden towers, along with some delicious fruits!  It was great for students to learn about smoothies and how to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their daily life.  Big thanks to Miss Aronyk, Mrs. Sarauer, and our amazing Garden Club leaders for their leadership in this initiative!  The green smoothies were DELICIOUS!

Hats off to the Forest Green Garden Club Smoothy-Making Team!

  1. Shout out to the Garden Club! It has been exciting to see the students learning as they have produced vegetables using this innovative technology. Vertical gardening takes on many forms and is proving to be a solution to urban sprawl in many parts of the world. Also, this technology provides opportunity for year round gardening in non-hospitable climates. Who knows? The learning taking place by our garden leaders at Forest Green might lead a revolution in urban gardening in our northern climate.
