Dacusville Diggers

Dacusville Middle School is looking for a few students who aren't afraid of a little dirt!

If you like gardening, working outside, and don't mind getting a little dirty, then the Dacusville Diggers Club might be for you! The club utilizes the greenhouse, as a way to connect with the Dacusville Community and to beautify our Dacusville Middle School grounds. This agricultural club will be sponsored by Mrs. Powell. The student activities will include:

  • Learning about and maintaining the greenhouse.
  • Starting vegetable and flower plants from seed.
  • Caring for growing plants in the greenhouse.
  • Transplanting seedlings for sale at our annual flower sale.
  • Planting hanging baskets for sale at our annual flower sale.
  • Planning the annual flower sale in the spring: pricing, set up, advertisement, and managing sales.
  • Creating plant markers, etc.
  • Creating and maintaining the habitat gardens at DMS.

Working in the DMS greenhouse is a fun and rewarding learning experience for all involved.

We will meet on Thursdays beginning January 29, 2015. Meeting time will be from 3:30pm – 4:30pm.
