What’s the Dirt?

Got any eggshells? Botany Club is starting to get down and dirty.

Club president junior Lyss Fanning starts the meeting by sharing its goals for the year. They plan to make money to support the club by selling: starter plants, homecoming flowers, lollipops, tea and possibly seed packets.

We plan on using the money we make to redo the courtyards and possibly go to feeder schools and teach kids about plants and plant there.”

Unfortunately, the club won’t be able to continue much longer without students’ help. Some of the things they need include soil, rocks, jars, eggshells, small pots, gardening tools and gloves.

“We can hold donations in W200,” Fanning said. “And right now we could use all that we could get, the more the better.”

This newly started club has already laid down ground rules with the schools. When their plants start to blossom, they won’t be able to sell on school grounds. The plan is to travel around the Kansas City area and find local farmers markets.

“We plan on using the money we make to redo the courtyards and possibly go to feeder schools and teach kids about plants and plant there,” Fanning said.

The club meets after school Tuesdays in room W200 but may change. To stay updated: Use Remind app code to get updates. Text 81010, @h9ccdege
