Bonnie’s Plants sponsors a cabbage growing contest which for the last 15 years has encouraged teacher participation. The program began in Alabama and has grown to include 48 states. One student in Suzanne Diaz’s class produced an amazing 38 pound cabbage by simply planting it and did not do anything other than place it in the ground and water it at least once daily. The now awesome winner of the cabbage growing contest is Dominic Kelly.

Dominic Kelly is a fourth grade student at Floresta Elementary (School District of St. Lucie County on the Treasure Coast) and the state of Florida winner in Bonnie’s Plants’ cabbage growing contest program. Erica Der, the Education Liaison from the Florida Department of Agriculture presented Dominic with a certificate from the State of Florida. Jonathan Shepherd, representative for Bonnie’s Plants, presented Dominic with a $1,000 savings bond, which could double by maturity to be worth nearly $2,000. Now the dilemma for Dominic’s family is what they will do with the colossal cabbage! Congratulations to Dominic Kelly and Floresta Elementary School.
