The starts are starting to show their green for Dr. Sherrie Steiner and her sociology students in their “Great Greenhouse Giveaway” START project. The group has made it through the first part of their dirty business by finishing the planting process. They’ve received a truckload of dirt, filled reusable bags with soil, settled and dried the soil, and just finished seeding the pots. And things are really coming along quickly: some of the first seeds that were planted are already beginning to sprout!
Soon we will be able to share updates from the other members of this group as they ready their plants, instructions, and messages for the people of Blackford County, IPFW, and other local food deserts.
