Followup: Plant pots donated for Arbor Heights’ tomato project

(Photo by WSB co-publisher Patrick Sand)
Yet another great example of generosity: We wrote on Thursday about the call for one-gallon plant-pot donations for the tomato-growing project in which Arbor Heights Elementary teacher Marcia Ingerslev and her students learn, teach, and share – and about an hour ago, that call was answered, big time! Our photo includes some of the donors as well as excited tomato-farming students. (We’ll be adding a few photos from parent volunteers who were there too – THANK YOU!)

    Thanks for your excellent lessons, Mrs. I! Thanks for the tomato plants, charitable donors! Way to go, Augie–looking good!

    Is Ms. Ingerslev still accepting pots? I have some to donate but don’t want to leave them over the weekend.

    When I first saw the headline, I read “Pot Plants donated…” I know we just legalized pot, but this seemed a bit much :-)

    Thank you to everyone who brought pots to our school. I believe we will have enough for our project this year. The people who came were so kind and encouraging. I am humbled by the response. We have been offered soil. I just need to figure out where to put it. Again, thank you for your support.

    Hi Marcia,

    Thank you for this awesome student project.

    One way to store soil in a small space and make it mobile is to use garbage cans on wheels (and the lid keeps the soil from getting too saturated.) My neighbors, Shawna and Marc, and I are happy to purchase two such plastic garbage cans if and when you are ready for them. Please email me at Cheers, Teri

    If what Teri suggested would work we will also deliver the 2 cans with soil!

    To TwoBottles: Glad to know I’m not the only one whose mind sees “pot plants” every time my eyes read “plant pots”. What’s that say about us?

Sorry, comment time is over.
