The Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program

One of my greatest joys is getting kids excited about gardening. Their unfettered enthusiasm is infectious and it's fun to share their sense of wonder and amazement in seeing plants grow. I also happen to think gardeners are great people and the world needs more of them!  A fun way to nurture a child's gardening talents is the Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program.  It's a cabbage growing contest for 3rd-grade students.  A child from each state is selected to win a $1000 scholarship. I just love the idea of kids all over the country growing gigantic heads of cabbage.  I like to think of it as the cabbage version of Hands Across America.
