Mr. Turpin showcases our new tower garden to the students

On Monday thanks to Mrs O'Neil and Mr.Turpin the school launched it's first ever Tower Garden!

Students were also given their own mini gardens to take home and nurture and grow while our Tower Garden sprouts.

Huge thanks to ConocoPhillips for supporting this exciting new venture. Over the next few months, we will wait with great anticipation the arrival of healthy greens and veggies...did anyone say smoothy?

Mmm we can't wait!


Stay tuned- we are looking for a nifty name to call our Tower Garden.  How about the Hanging Gardens of Conklin?
