After twenty-plus years, the Grow Lab Program has been discontinued.

We are sad to say goodbye to planting Brassica rapa plants in classrooms and sharing the Grow Lab curriculum with students across Utah. However, we are excited to welcome a new classroom visit program called Garden on the Grow. Starting next year, Garden on the Grow will be offered to first grade classrooms across the state on a three-year rotation and involves a Red Butte Garden Educator coming into classrooms to facilitate a SEEd enhanced program. To learn more about Garden on the Grow, click here.

Our remaining Grow Lab materials will be utilized in a professional development workshop called Seeds in Schools (please see below for details). If you are a teacher who has participated in the Grow Lab Program in the past, and has questions about supplies, please email GrowLab@RedButte.Utah.Edu.
