Attention All Grade 3 Students Who Want to Garden!

The Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program Registration is open now and it is free! 

Gardening teaches kids where food comes from, healthy eating and heightens their engagement with nature. A great way to get kids started in the garden is the National Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program, it’s free to any third grade classroom in the country (48 contiguous states), and kids love it!
The program began in 1995 at Bonnie Plants headquarters in Alabama, by 2002; it grew by leaps and bounds and now includes 48 states! Bonnie Plants initiated the program with a mission to inspire a love of vegetable and herb gardening in young people. Each year, Bonnie trucks more than one million free O.S. Cross cabbage plants to 3rd grade classrooms across the country.

Calling all Third Graders! Have you ever tried growing your own food right in your own backyard? Whether you’ve thought about it or not, you can do it, and the National Bonnie Plants Third Grade Cabbage Program will help you.

Here’s how it works…. Every third grade classroom in the 48 contiguous states is invited to join
this fun, free, colossal cabbage growing contest. Yes, it’s a National contest! Growing a cabbage provides third grade students with a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship from Bonnie Plants, plus statewide recognition. Bonnie Plants awards a scholarship to one winner from each state.

Third Grade Teachers: If your third grade class isn’t already registered for this exciting program, it’s simple to get started. You can easily register your class online at www.bonnieplants.com. Just fill out the registration form and submit. Once registered, Bonnie

Plants will truck, direct to your classroom, enough cabbage plants for each of your third grade students to take home and grow. Delivery date(s) are based on geographic region. The cabbage provided is an O.S. Cross; the “O.S.” stands for “oversized” and this variety can grow to be gigantic! In 8 to 10 weeks after planting, students should have a huge, healthy cabbage ready for harvest and program entry.
