Hurley Horticulturist in Training

Hurley - May 27, 2009

The after school students at the Hurley School received some garden training recently from members of the Range Master Gardeners. Wisconsin/Michigan Master Gardener, Lynn Adams completed another gardening project involving the local school students.

Early this spring the students of teachers Amy Swarz and Carol Saari planted tomato seeds. Since then they have been caring for the seedlings which have successfully grown into plants. The students transplanted their tomato plants in larger containers to take home for the summer. The extra plants grown by the students were also transplanted and were brought to Garden Estates to be given to the residents.

Some of the students, with the help of the Master Gardeners, also planted  flower planters in front of the school building. Each year, the after school students plant annuals in the urns that you see in front of the school. This year there was a great deal of wind during the planting, making the job a little more difficult. None-the-less the kids did a great job!
