Planters of the Seeds: Benjamin Logan Environmental Science Club Grows Green in School Greenhouse


The Benjamin Logan Environmental Science Club, comprising enthusiastic students and dedicated advisors, recently convened at the school’s greenhouse for a night of meaningful service and research. This gathering marked the initiation of the club’s diverse projects, with a focus on soil preparation, seeding, and nurturing the growth of a variety of plants for their 2024 summer initiatives.

During the event, participants engaged in activities known to reduce stress, instill a sense of purpose, and foster a deeper connection with the natural world. As soil-covered fingers delicately planted tiny seeds, students delved into the intricacies of soil compaction and its impact on the development of young plants and their roots. The greenhouse provided a warm and collaborative atmosphere, where camaraderie flourished among the participants.

Upon completion of their tasks, the students had sown the seeds of hundreds of Cherokee Purple and Brandywine tomatoes, complemented by an assortment of chard, peppers, and herbs. The evening concluded with a brief lesson on seed germination stages, followed by a reflective journaling session.

This event is just one of many exemplifying the club’s unwavering dedication to environmental conservation and education. The students showcased their commitment to embodying the change they aspire to see in the world.
