ABOUT SPONSOR:

The Carton 2 Garden program is part of Evergreen Packaging’s ongoing effort to raise awareness among consumers on the eco-friendly benefits of paper cartons. Cartons are an eco-friendly packaging choice because more than 70% of milk carton packaging is paper, made from trees, a renewable resource. Currently, over 50% of households in the United States have access to recycling programs that accept paper milk cartons.

Drinking milk and juice has never been more fun with Evergreen Packaging’s Carton 2 Garden Contest. Evergreen Packaging and KidsGardening.org are on the lookout for your creative and sustainable uses for recycled milk and juice cartons in the garden. Schools are encouraged to collect, design, and construct garden-related structures made from empty cartons and document their experience.

It’s not too late in the season to install or expand your school garden. Encourage your new students to become engaged in the garden and lay the foundation for successful spring planting by trying some fun garden projects this fall. Inspire young gardeners to get involved at the beginning of the academic year by giving them hands-on opportunities to add to the garden. Getting involved in the school garden means much more than harvesting fall produce, raking leaves, and composting.

Plan Ahead: The Fall Garden

Right Side Box: 

It's not too late to plant the school garden! Plant edibles like lettuce, spinach, kale, and radishes for a fall harvest. Check out our Winter Garden Seed Collection

Gardening is often considered a spring or summer activity, but many plants grow beautifully in fall! Planted in late summer, a number of vegetables will grow to maturity -- even in northern areas -- and this is the best time of year to plant spring-flowering bulbs. Engaging children in the garden throughout the year strengthens their understanding of nature's cycles and deepens their love and respect for the environment.

Beneficial Insects: We Get By with a little Help from Our Friends

Right Side Box: 

What lives in your garden? Check out this free lesson that explores the garden as a habitat for pollinators, wildlife, and other living organisms. 

We can all use a little help in the garden. And the garden has an army of tiny helpers eager to lend a hand. They are the beneficial insects, ones that behave in ways that are helpful to the crops we grow. These “good bugs” help out in a variety of ways—by hunting and eating (or using as food for their young) insects that are harmful to our crops, by parasitizing insects we consider pests, or by pollinating the fruiting plants we grow.
