Carolyn Houston, a science curriculum specialist at Bolles who has formal training in biology and a masters degree in education, developed GYO's education program and will serve as the lead instructor for program. As an international youth gardening program developed by the University Cooperative Extension Network, the program is designed to engage children in “novel, hands-on group and individual learning experiences that provide a love of gardening, develop an appreciation for the environment, and cultivate the mind.”
Earning a certification is achieved by completing eight lessons from the JMG Plant Growth & Development curriculum. The GYO Greens program is registered with Texas A&M University, headquarters for JMG programs.
Students will also be comparing aquaponic farming with traditional methods.
Now, the farm – which uses a sustainable farming method that combines traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals in tanks: in this case, fish) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment – is offering a Junior Master Gardener certification program for children ages 8-12.
“The planters outside are part of the certification: they will have to do work outside and inside (the greenhouse),” said Fellows. “We will do comparison in between the two systems.”
Horrible quality seeds. None were dark brown or tiger striped. Spent 800.00 on crap. I'm absolutely livid. Should ashamed youre taking peoples money. Never again.
Fu** this company. I dont ever write reviews but this place deserves one. I had purchased some from them a time back and paid with cash and it was fine. I tryed to purchase a second time with bitcoin this time and they have robbed me. I had finished my cart and went to send the money. I sent it to the address they provided. Then they proceeded to cancel my order and tell me i never sent them money. I contacted my wallet company and they said it definitely sent to them, but they refuse to even look in to the problem with my proof and all. Wont even credit me anything. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY, THEY ARE THEIVES.
Im stuffed then i didn't read these…
I ordered from GYO last year and what a mistake! The seeds were inferior, germination was 60% and of those that grew some were stunted. After complaining they sent 5 more seeds which had 60% germination and two stunted. This company is just a middleman with little knowledge of what they sell. I would never buy from them again.
I’d give zero stars if I could. Spent nearly a hundred dollars for an order that never arrived and when I emailed to try to rectify the issue all I got was “maybe someone else in your family took the order” I live alone. Total scam. Don’t be fooled!
Beware operating as Homegrown Cannabis Co., probably same crap customer service and rip off, just a diffrent name to draw in victims.
GYO GREENS uses a sustainable farming method which combines traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals – in our case, fish – in tanks) with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. All produce is grown naturally using standard organic practices.
