What is your wish for this project?

We would like to purchase native plants for our school campus and supplies for making wooden signs to educate the public on the benefits of native plants, and illustrate the ecosystem for each species we plant.

How did it go?

My Environmental Activism class mapped the school and identified several places that would benefit from a Native Plant garden. We ended up choosing a hillside that had a high rate of erosion, dumping soil onto an outside amphitheater is used twice a week at lunch by students. We used the Tree-People lesson guide to identify plants that would grow under pine trees, on hills and in clay soil.
