NSU garden project blooms into student victory gardens

NSU garden project blooms into student victory gardens

NSU Elementary Lab student Drew Stewart planted seedlings in his home victory garden. NSU students who began a university garden donated the plants to E-Lab students to plant at their home gardens and hope to resume development of a university garden next semester.

A service project begun by a group of Northwestern State University students in the Presidential Leadership Program blossomed into a victory garden learning experience for NSU Elementary Lab School students.

Earlier in the semester, PLP students worked with Dr. Michelle Morris, professor of educational psychology, to create a vegetable garden to serve university students. Under Morris’s direction, the PLP students planted a variety of vegetable seeds intended to supplement food items available at the NSU Food Pantry.

“After NSU transitioned online, the vegetable plants were given to local children so that they can grow gardens at home,” said Morris, who has worked with several local elementary schools to develop school gardens. Morris contacted Lisa Wiggins, 4-H sponsor at the NSU Elementary Lab School, who has worked with students on school vegetable, herb and flower gardens that attract butterflies and encourage interest in earth sciences.
