This January, we are starting the year off with the Indoor Plant Drive, a winter blues busting, air filtering campaign to bring more plants into the classroom.  Please read on for more information about NASA’s Clean Air Study and a study from the University Technology, Sydney about plants in the classroom.  Simply send in your child with a plant, preferably tropical which are more tolerant of lower light conditions indoors, straight to their classroom.  You can find a list of suggested plants here as well as some places where you can buy them here.  We are happy to accept plants not listed here as well.  Thank you to the staff and families of Frankland for your support and participation in this initiative.  Please email any questions or concerns to Liisa at greenhouseclinic@gmail.com and visit greenhouseclinic.com to learn more.

EcoSchools began in the fall and the EcoTeam led by Gary Bieler has formed for the year.  The EcoClub consisting of about 20 eager students just finished the first Waste Audit of the school year and will be posting results soon…

 

This year at Frankland, we have Elin, our Garden Educator, who will return in the spring to visit once a week and works with students and teachers in and around the garden with harvesting, cooking, mapping and more.  View her current curriculum here.
