Germination Corps. in Pittsburgh
plants, packs, people

May 2014 Germination Corps. was in Pittsburgh working with the Mattress Factory Art Museum as a sponsor. We worked with four schools in the area and many many cool kids to bring Plant Packs to their classrooms where we learned about planting, germinating, and food growing.

Each student got two plants in their own Plant Pack that they then took care of for up to a week, taking it from class to class with them and watering it and caring for it throughout their school day.

We had a Plant Parade from the Mattress Factory to the local YMCA garden to plant the seedlings back in the garden and give them back to the community.

The parade with big and bright with big vegetables and plant packs and all the Germination Corps members wearing vegetable and plant crowns.
