Tiny Sprouts, Big Hopes

Attention Gardeners and seed planters!

Tomorrow at 1:00 we will be meeting in N201 in order to take care of our seedlings.  The seeds we planted last week have mostly all germinated and there are little lettuce and herb sprouts there.

If you can come by at 1:00 we may try to put the hydroponics system together.  {That will be interesting too}

So Often

Over and over again members of the Garden Club and the City Tech community step up to the plate and make something wonderful happen.

In October it was plates full of spice cookies and decorated pumpkins. At that party folks from all over the college contributed toward a hydroponic system. That became seed money for the Giving Tuesday campaign which in turn brought in enough money to ensure that hydroponics will happen next semester.

Last week it was platters of student-crafted sweets and savories at the Holiday Party & Fundraiser. Generous contributions from all over City Tech resulted in $400 for the CHIPS holiday meal which is happening on Dec 19.

When people at the college come together, the positive energy puts a smile on everybody’s face.

Plant sale fun in the early spring

Pumpkin CHIPS

Just two weeks ago the Garden Club hosted the first ever Pumpkin Decorating party. We had a full house:  guests came by and enjoyed pumpkin cupcakes, spice cookies, cider and focaccia while they decorated their own pumpkins. It was fantastic to see students from all over the college getting creative with paint, markers and punkins.

And the club raised $300.00 to purchase a hydroponic system for the college!

{Next up: Fundraiser for CHIPS soup kitchen. Stay tuned}
