Pharr Elementary celebrates garden with third annual event

Pharr Elementary has developed a reputation around the state for its school garden, and recently, the school celebrated its third annual garden night with a host of festivities.

Among the events during the night were a scavenger hunt through the indoor ponics lab and outdoor gardens, and the garden club talked to families in the garden about the new sensory garden, African Keyhole garden, greenhouse, Loofah gourds, Cabbage Patch and the Math Garden.

In the ponics lab, families learned about hydroponics, aquaponics, and aeroponics. Students worked to complete math problems in the STEAM lab and did leaf rubbings from plants in the garden in the art room. Second-grade students concluded their study of plants with a plant sale that will benefit new garden projects.
