Bromley and Kelly Hall
On February 26, 2010, Mrs.
Bromley, Mrs. Manke, Mr. Peabody, Mrs. Exo, Mrs. Brown, and the two of
us, went to MSU for a school garden grant team meeting. It was really
fun and awesome! The first thing we did was sign in and get a name
tag. Then we went into the auditorium to find out what we were going to
do. After that, everyone had a different place to go. We went to tour
the different greenhouses. Our favorite greenhouse was the 4-H
Childrenís Garden. We loved the pond and all of the pretty flowers
inside. We learned how to draw with plants, and we planted plants and
colored flower pots. We also made gardening posters. Then we had a
delicious lunch and went back to the auditorium to watch some video
clips. After that, we went to a computer lab and went on KidsCom.
KidsCom is a website that teaches you about gardening. Next, we showed
the adults what KidsCom is and what you do. We were really nervous at
first, because there were lots of people in the room, but after awhile,
we got used to it. When the day was over, we left to go home. It was
snowing and blowing and it took us five hours to get back to Onekama.
Also, on our way back, we stopped at Olive Garden for dinner in
Muskegon. We canít wait to go back to MSU in the spring!
