Innovative Solution to Pest Control

We are happy to welcome our friends at Hawthorn Hill Elementary School in Lee’s Summit, MO to the PLG community.

With their powers combined, students at Hawthorn Hill teamed up to find a chemical-free, humane strategy for keeping critters out of their beds. Check out those cages!

Pest management presents a great opportunity to engage students in relevant and real-world design challenges. These kids were definitely up for the challenge. Thank you Hawthorn Hill for welcoming us so warmly and for being so thoughtful about your growing program. And a huge THANKS to our partners at Dole Sunshine and Price Chopper Supermarkets for making this possible. We all look forward to watching Hawthorn Hill grow!
