Junior Harvesters’ Program (JHP)
P.R.I.Z.E. Greenhouse is proud to present our Junior Harvesters’ Program (JHP) to Sunshine Acres! Like all programs here, we strive to reach our children on multiple levels and are growing much more than fruits and vegetables. Here, we’re growing a childs’ math, science, language arts, and social studies skills while promoting responsibility and healthful eating.
How do we do this? With aeroponic gardening in our Tower Garden! This gardening system grows plants in an air/mist environment rather than soil, making it the perfect, year-round S.T.E.M project! This earth-friendly approach to gardening uses much less water and space than soil gardens and the kids absolutely LOVE it!
Our hours are flexible during the school year to accommodate extra-curricular activities while our summer program is longer allowing more time to seed, grow, and learn!
If children grow fruits and vegetables, they’re more likely to eat fruits and vegetables. Even children who usually shy away from healthful foods become more likely to eat fresh produce after becoming involved in gardening. We get to see their smiling faces and they get to eat healthy food! It’s a win-win!
If you are interested in helping our JHP grow feel free to contact our Front Desk. There are also volunteer opportunities available on our P.R.I.Z.E. Grow Team!!
