First Batch of 2,000+ Transplants Delivered

First Batch of Transplants at Greenhouse

The first batch of over 2,000 transplants from the new Coppell Community Garden greenhouse have been distributed. During the month of August, all of the transplants were transferred into production from their initial germination and growth stages.

All three of Coppell’s Community Gardens received the bulk of these transplants starting in the middle of the month. Despite the extreme heat, survival rates have been very good.

In the last week, all of the remaining transplants have been transferred into production in several Coppell ISD school gardens. Larry Thompson, project leader for Gardening and Child Nutrition with CISD and also a Dallas County Master Gardener, stated that “the transplants are extremely healthy with exceptional root development”.

The next batch of seedlings has already been started in the greenhouse. These will be ready to move into production in about a month.
