Big Green
Plant. Grow. Pick.

 

Southfield Public Schools teamed up with Big Green this year to install a learning garden. Students worked with their team members to plant seeds and have been watching them grow. In a couple of weeks the Big Green team will return and our Vandenberg students will get to pick the plants that they planted.
