This Spring, Project Super Plants expanded our leadership team to include a new branch at Nueva. Our cross-school team now consists of eleven high schoolers working together to run classroom sessions and will allow us to have an even larger reach throughout the Bay Area.

North Bay Science Discovery Day
Spring 2023

Project Super Plants ran a booth at the North Bay Science Discovery Day in Santa Rosa! An incredibly exciting and inspiring day!

 

We engaged 1000 visitors and planted car Super Plants with 350 kids, growing 3000+ native California Melicgrass seeds.

 

Families learned about the science behind Super Plants and planted their own in compostable pots to transplant into home gardens.
