Boardman's Glenwood Middle School gets H.O.P.E. grant

BOARDMAN — The sky opened up after recent light showers, offering a perfect time for Boardman Glenwood Middle School students to move their garden out to the courtyard in the middle of the building.

The kids entered the courtyard, helping to take the plants out and get the garden prepared, moving the soil and transplanting their Glenwood greenery into a new home. All this activity is thanks to a $1,500 grant the H.O.P.E. Club received from the Scotts

Miracle-Gro Co.

The GRO1000 Grassroots Grant is part of the company’s initiative designed to help create 1,000 gardens and pollinator habitats in the U.S., Canada and Europe by 2018 to celebrate Scotts’ 150th anniversary. The grant, applied for in February, will help fund the construction of the garden to support more plants, which for now is partially completed.

The Helping Our Planet Earth Club started two years ago and has grown as an eco-friendly activity attracting students who want to help the environment.
