A longtime SLUG School, at the Chittick, they focus their energies on two aspects of the SLUG program--indoor and outdoor gardening.
This past Spring, they started plants indoors that were later transplanted outside to one of the school's 4 multilevel 4x8 garden beds.
The beans got a great start in the grow lab!

In the Spring of 2011 the Chittick starts their seeds inside to get a jump on the growing season.

In November/December the outdoor SLUG program is winding down.

Evidence of a great year is shown on the Outdoor Learning Log. Look at those squash!

The Spring of 2010 found classrooms gardening both indoors and out.
