Triton College and Jane Addams School Garden Collaboration
Triton College partnered up with the Jane Addams Nature Club and Ms. Matticks’s kindergarten class to plant vegatables in the Battaan Park community garden. The children planted a variety of seeds with the instructors from Triton’s culinary department. The Nature Club will meet weekly throughout the summer to care for the plants.
Additionally, students in the engineering technology department built custom side-view planter boxes for each student to take home. The children planted cilantro seeds and rosemary plants in each box. The goal of this project is to teach students how their food is grown and how to incoporate fresh foods into their daily meals.
