Plant Learn Grow’s very own Cara had “first-hand” experience with this Sensitive plant, which responds to touch by folding up its leaves.

Students from 77K work at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We went behind-the-scenes to see the greenhouse where it all happens.

Greetings, dedicated PLGers! As the outdoor growing season is soon coming to an end, the new school school year is just beginning and we are very excited to share new resources and opportunities with you. Our Plant Learn Grow 101 PD will be on October 18 at 373K, in addition to our full menu of Hydroponics/ Aquaponics, Composting, Sustainability, and of course the Teaching in the Garden Series with BBG and NYBG. Check out the current course offerings here. In the meantime, here are some late but awesome photos from our Garden Day event last June. Enjoy!


Last Friday, we had a full day PD for teachers- all about composting! Here are some photos of Greg, our in-house Master Composter, leading the group at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden . Many thanks to BBG and the Master Composters for having us!



During the workshop, I spied some ground rainbows. Good work, sprinkler!

The Brooklyn Botanic Gardens hosted our PLG workshop last month. We explored the new Discovery Gardens as well as the Native Flora Garden, which is 100% pure New York City flora. Some of us had to dodge Black Walnut pods that started raining down!IMG_3595
