  • 1.  Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program for 3rd Grade

    Posted 10-21-2021 08:56:00 AM
    Fall registration for the Bonnie Plants 3rd Grade Cabbage Program is currently opening and we're excited to invite you and your students to participate! Through this hands-on science lesson, students will learn about backyard ecology and plant life cycles by growing colossal cabbages and reaping hefty harvests. Students also vie for "Best in State" bragging rights - with a $1,000 scholarship awarded to one student in each participating state!

    Bonnie Plants has designed the 3rd Grade Cabbage program with COVID-19 safety in mind. With the added stress of learning during the pandemic – getting outside to connect with gardening is more important than ever for the physical and mental well-being of students.

    Participating in the 3rd Grade Cabbage Program is completely free! Simply click here(link is external) to register your class or student. Your students' cabbages will be delivered by mail during your selected shipping window. After you've signed up, we'll follow up with instructions just in time for planting, growing, and harvesting, and a ton of other useful resources to help students learn and succeed along the way.

    Hi Michelle,
    Thanks for the reminder on this Bonnie Cabbage program. I have always meant to look into it. I see that it is only a program for Zone 8-11. Do you happen to know if they offer a spring/summer program for Zone 5? Thanks

    HI Pamela,

    I do not. It might be worth asking them.

    Dear Pamela,

    Thank you for your interest in Bonnie Plants.

    The Fall program is for USDA Hardiness Zones 8 - 11 where cabbage can grow in the cooler months. https://planthardiness.ars.usda.gov/

    Your hardiness zone is eligible for the Spring program and you can register on 1/10/22.

    Thanks,
    Will
