PRISM at Montclair State University is giving away FREE "Grow and Learn" plant growth kits at their office in NJ. Each boxed kit has 80 peat pots packaged as "pods" containing seeds in paper planting strips, labeled tags for all 20 different kinds of vegetable and herb seeds, with pellets of growing medium, and are ideal for children. Take one kit for a class or several for a school or community garden, as long as the supply lasts.
YouTube videos provide step-by-step instructions: Grow and learn with seed pods!
Also, use the GROW & LEARN app in the App Store. The seed pods are each coded for scanning and use in the app, which has extensive instructions and activities for kids.
Pick up at PRISM offices in Bloomfield on April 27, 28, 29, May 5, and May 6 between 2:00 and 4:30 pm.
Call or email first to let us know you are coming! Multiple sets of kits can be taken for many classes, but please reserve and come soon.
