In 2002, Bonnie Plants started the 3rd Grade Cabbage Program with a mission to inspire a love of vegetable gardening in young people. Each year, they distribute more than one million free cabbage plants to 3rd Grade classrooms across the country*. As part of the program, Bonnie Plants awards a $1,000 scholarship to one student in each state.
Students will plant, nurture and measure the growth of their cabbage plants during the Spring. Thank you to Bonnie Plants for getting our 3rd graders excited to garden!
