Mission students plant 600 flower bulbs

Grade 1 kids from Valley Christian School planted bulbs given to them by Bulbs4Kids

Grade 1 student from Mission’s Valley Christian School planted flower bulbs in their school garden last month.

The flower bulbs were given to them by Bulbs4Kids, a program that is allowing the class to become familiar with flower bulbs and the world of nature in a way that is also a lot of fun. When the tulips, crocuses, daffodils and grape hyacinths start blooming early in the spring, this school garden will be bursting with color.

The class signed up last spring to receive a flower bulb kit. This means that this class – one of 100 classes in Canada, 425 classes in the Netherlands, 800 classes in Germany, 450 classes in England and 300 classes in France – will be participating in the Bulbs4Kids project.

Since each kit contains 600 flower bulbs, more than one million flower bulbs will be planted in school gardens.

The school will be selling the plants in pots in the spring. Proceeds will go towards the grades 7/8 annual sailing trip.
