Bonnie Plants delivers millions of free cabbage plants each year to students in third grade classes throughout the country. The program offers students a chance to get a unique, hands-on gardening experience through growing colossal cabbages, reaping hefty harvests, and holding high hopes to win “best in state” and receive a $1,000 scholarship towards education from Bonnie Plants.

After you register your class, a Bonnie Plants salesperson will contact you and deliver the plants to your school in time for growing season. You can then distribute the plants to your classroom. Make sure each student gets their own cabbage to grow at home or in your school’s garden. Use our custom lesson plans to incorporate cabbage gardening into your class activities throughout the year. At the end of the growing season (after about 8 to 10 weeks), students should submit a digital image of themselves and their cabbage, plus the weight of their cabbage, to you, and you’ll pick a class winner. Take note that the biggest and best cabbages are given plenty of time to grow, so you may need to keep in touch with your 3rd Grade class over the summer. Fourth Grade teachers can also submit winners (as students may have graduated to 4th Grade by the time their cabbage is harvested), but should include the name of the student’s 3rd Grade teacher in the submission. Once you submit your class’s winning cabbage entry, it will be entered for a chance to win $1,000 from Bonnie Plants for your state’s competition.

At the end of the season, teachers from each participating class select the student who has grown the “best” cabbage, based on size and appearance. A digital image of the cabbage and student is submitted online and that student’s name is then entered in a random statewide drawing. State winners are randomly selected by office of the Commission of Agriculture, in each of 48 participating states.
