Having Fun Growing Plants

Trenton Elementary School principal, Mr. Michael Zboray, is pictured with Ms. Snow Ross’ third grade class who participates in the nationwide “Farm to School Program.”  This USDA program encourages schools to teach children about where their food comes from and how it nourishes their bodies.

The Bar Harbor Garden Club presented the school a monetary gift towards their greenhouse project and gardening endeavors.  Each month the entire staff and student body taste a sample of something that they or local farmers have grown.  The class is pictured with a tray of “green” seedlings that they planted under the direction of Ms. Whitney Ciancetta, Ed Tech and Greenhouse coordinator.  The Club gave monetary gifts to our five local schools, as well as Frenchboro.
