Last school year Arrowhead Primary invited 3rd grade students to participate in the Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage program. In 2002, Bonnie Plants started the 3rd Grade Cabbage Program with a mission to inspire a love of vegetable gardening in young people. Each year, they distribute more than one million free cabbage plants to 3rd Grade classrooms across the country. As part of the program, Bonnie Plants awards a $1,000 scholarship to one student in each state.Teachers submit a class winner and a child is chosen by each state’s Director of Agriculture.
Students at Arrowhead were given a cabbage plant to care for over the summer. At the start of the school year, students were asked to measure their cabbage and submit the info along with a photo of themselves with their cabbage.
