The students at the STEM program at Montclair High School got down and dirty last wednesday when we decided to plant seedlings for Guerrilla Gardening.
The students were given many options of what to plant, varying from watermelon to parsley. The challenge was being in a room with 20-30 high school students and a huge bag of soil and not making a mess (needless to say, we did.)

There were many other groups as well, working hard and getting their hands dirty planting their seeds. In the end we now have several seedlings planted, hopefully soon it will be warm enough to plant them outside!
Florise and I planted cucumbers, parsley, bell peppers, zucchini, basil, and tomatoes. I will try to keep updated on the growth of the plants, but they have already started sprouting!
