Growing with Greenville

School of Distinction AwardPhenix City Schools

Principal, Mrs. Lanette Holmes

Superintendent, Mr. Randy Wilkes

Growing with Greenville was created as a unique student-centered greenhouse program which exposed students to everything from basic plant life cycles to outdoor wildlife connections and conservation. During weekly greenhouse classes, students engaged in a variety of activities related to one of the program’s three focus areas. First, students interacted with numerous phases of growing plants such as seed germination, identifying plant parts, watching a plant’s life cycle, and the actual caring for and pruning of plants. This learning phase culminated with community outreach through the selling of plants to the public. Gardening was another program focus where students learned to grow, harvest, and eat fruits and vegetables grown in the raised beds beside the greenhouse. Students also learned about health and nutrition in an outside setting. The third component focused on the school nature trail where students had the opportunity to use plant taxonomy in a natural setting. Fifth grade students were provided the opportunity to become wildlife certified as part of The Alabama Extension Office’s Junior Master Gardener Program. These learning experiences helped students develop leadership skills by utilizing environmental science as a vehicle to develop academic skills, character education, and community service. Growing with Greenville shaped young minds by sparking a passion for learning through gardening.
