Students from Mossman Elementary set up a farmers market
Students from Mossman Elementary set up a farmers market to sell home grown tomatoes, lettuce and herbs, among other things, according to a school press release.
The market was designed, led and managed by third- through fifth-graders in the school's garden club, according to the release, selling items from the discovery garden.
The discovery garden was funded by a $5,000 Clear Creek Education Foundation grant along with a Harris County grant for $25,000, according to the release. Biotech students at Clear Falls High School started seedlings for the garden. Mossman garden club students work in the garden every Tuesday and Thursday. Their recent harvest included jalapenos, bell peppers, lettuce, tomatoes and herbs. They also maintain a compost pile.
"Our fourth graders took three marketing classes at CFHS, to learn how to market and advertise this new venture and our fifth graders took three business classes and began developing a business plan for the spring farmers market," said Principal Stephanie McBride in the release.
Mossman Elementary School is at 4050 Village Way, League City.
