Yes ladies and gentlemen, the Garden of the Tigers Tomato Patch is complete. Each student raised their own tomato plant inside the greenhouse then successfully transplanted them into the Tomato Patch. All the plants survived the transplanting phase and now the nutrient dense tomatoes are on their way!
The students successfully planted an avocado tree in the Garden of the Tigers. It was the first tree they planted at the Jones High School living laboratory. They learned how to dig a proper hole and give the tree enough space to grow. “It seemed harder before anyone showed me,” Deion, a current student at Jones High, said, “after Mr. Frank explained it to me, was like ‘I got this.’” Together with his classmates, Semaj and Marquis, Deion planted the first avocado tree at Jones High School.
