Comments for a Cause: Tall Corn FFA Greenhouse

Comments for a Cause: Tall Corn FFA Greenhouse
Happy June 1st!  It's the first of June and time to talk Comments for a Cause.  But before I talk about this month's recipient, let's review last month's cause, United Through Reading.  During the month of May I had 33 comments, equaling a donation of $16.50.  Thank you to all that commented to help support military families and connect them through video recorded books during deployments and time apart.

Now for the month of June, I'm excited to be donating $0.50 for every comment made on my blog to my local Tall Corn FFA's new Greenhouse.


Comments for a Cause: Tall Corn FFA Greenhouse

If you read my last post, you found out that my local school will be whole-grade sharing its junior high and high school next year, and with that transition, my local FFA chapter will be transitioning too.  For the last several years the neighboring school district, which we will now be whole-grade sharing with, shared an FFA program and ag teacher with our school.  With the changes coming next year, everything will now be held at Hampton-Dumont Community School and the FFA is now in need of a greenhouse, as CAL will be keeping the FFA's current greenhouse to use in their elementary and middle school programs.

The greenhouse has become a great asset for the Tall Corn FFA chapter and agriculture education classes.  Greenhouses are great for students to learn problem solving, crop care and skills, and it exposes them to higher order thinking.  Mrs. DeBour, Tall Corn FFA Advisor, and her current students have some great plans and ideas for their new greenhouse.  They are planning on constructing a 30'x60' greenhouse in 9 to 12 months at the Hampton-Dumont High School, and they are currently fundraising and seeking out grants for the project.

Comments for a Cause: Tall Corn FFA Greenhouse
A sketch of what the new Tall Corn FFA Greenhouse will look like
All agricultural classes will be involved in the greenhouse through germinating seeds, transplanting seedlings, potting flower plugs, and caring for the aquaponics (fish & plants) system.  Mrs. DeBour is also hoping to add a horticulture class after the completion of the greenhouse.  The Tall Corn FFA's greenhouse will also be used to provide fresh produce for the school lunch program, and they will plan on hosting a plant sale in the spring that will support chapter activities and events. 

So help me support the Tall Corn FFA's new greenhouse project by commenting all month long!  Does your local school or FFA chapter have a greenhouse?  What do they all use their greenhouse for?  Remember to Comment for a Cause all month long!

  1. Another great cause! I think FFA is such a great organization, we need to keep feeding the world, even though some people don't understand that. I still want steak, tomatoes, pork chops, etc.

  16. The author has discussed a very resourceful topic in times of the pandemic. We, as a nation, cannot keep our children out of schools forever. Hence a plan needs to be implemented where children can safely go to school without getting mass infected. However, it is not recommended for parents or children to go physically to the shops for book supplies. Hence there is a need for an online book shop such as KitaabNow.
