BUGS show great leadership!


 
This week presented an exciting opportunity for students of the  
Baltimore Urban Gardening with Students after-school program.

Baltimore City's Student Environmental Leadership Action Team (SELAT) meeting was hosted by Commodore John Rodgers, just a few blocks from the BUGS campus. Our students prepared themselves for the meeting by talking about what healthy changes they would like to see at their school. The conversation focused a lot on trash, but we also touched on worms, bees, gardens, trees and more.

Afterwards, BUGS students designed and created a coloring book about recycling which they will give away at the BUGS Expo on Feb. 25th.

In other news... If your school green team is still looking for plants for the spring:

BUGS will start your seeds from scratch – submit request by Mar 1

Students will be growing seed starts for schools. If you provide the seeds, there is no cost; if BUGS supplies the seeds, schools can ask for specific plants and then pay a small fee ($5 per 20 plants).  Seedlings will be ready for pick-up at the BUGS Farmers Market on Apr 25 (802 S. Caroline St. in Harbor East, 10am-2pm).  Alternate pick up times can also be scheduled.
