ASPIRA South Awarded "Gardening For Grades" School Mini-Grant

aspirasouth_gardeningclub
We are excited to announce that ASPIRA South has been awarded a "Gardening For Grades" School Mini-Grant to be used by the Gardening and Landscape Club to design, create, and maintain an edible fruit and vegetable garden on campus at the school site.

Awarded by the Florida Department of Agriculture, the "Gardening For Grades" school grant is designed to place emphasis on the Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standards in Science and focus on fruits and vegetables produced by Florida's agricultural community.

aspirasouth_gardeningstudentStudents of the Gardening and Landscape Club will investigate a variety of farming techniques with a wide array of food crops.

Science classes at ASPIRA South will also participate by conducting scientific, inquiry based lessons on the effects of a wide variety of variables on plant growth, fruit and vegetable production and taste with the intent of using the information for submission to the ASPIRA South Science Fair and the Dade County Youth Fair.
