Green Thumbs works to engage elementary school kids in gardening and get them interested in topics around the environment and thoughtful eating. Green Thumbs visits Greenvale Elementary School once a week to conduct lessons with 2nd and 3rd grade students through the Greenvale Park Community School enrichment program. We maintain a community garden plot next to the school and members work closely to create activity-based lessons that introduce the basics of plant science.
