Students in the 4th grade are entitled to membership in the Green Thumb Club if they plant and maintain a school or home garden over the summer. Membership benefits include, a fun day at Euclid Beach Amusement Park, tickets to a Cleveland Indians game and the Cuyahoga County Fair, the Garden Center of Greater Cleveland Garden Fair (cash prizes with ribbons), and the annual October awards program (certificates, pins, medals, Agicola award).
