Sands Montessori is proud to announce our students will grow vegetables on TOWER GARDENS this year!

Thanks to Adrianne Mayne and Meghan Fronduti and a grant by the Cincy Good Food Fund, Sands is part of a 3-school CPS pilot program leading the way for aeroponic classroom gardening.
These innovative gardens can be grown outside, or inside with grow lights. Students will plant seeds, monitor growth, and harvest food with hands-on lessons about environmental science, sustainability and healthy eating!
If you or someone you know would like to grow on Tower Gardens too, please contact our garden expert Adrianne Mayne through her website at or call 513-219-0923.
These referrals help to fund and grow our school garden program. Thank you!


We Missed you!
