Through community mapping our students have identified several problems affecting their community. Specifically, our gardening class & Service Club would like to help combat hunger, obesity, and diabetes through our service project 'One Plant At a Time'. Students are interested in learning how to start vegetable plants from seeds. First, after researching and planning which vegetables would be the best to start indoors and would offer the greatest nutrients, they would begin planting their vegetables in recycled containers (milk, yogurt, cereal cups etc..). Once the plants were established, students will plan a workshop for other students and parents and teach them about what they have learned about starting seeds, and the health benefits of vegetable gardening. In addition, students will offer low cost solutions by using recycled materials to grow plants in. This workshop will also include a student made "How To" worksheet. Students will not only get an opportunity to provide their community with free plants, but will also teach other valuable information.

Students will be working in groups to learn more about hydroponics, the nonprofit SEED, and ways that learning Arduino-hydroponics farming techniques might help urban communities like South LA. As this is our first year working on the project, we will start small--by installing small hydroponics systems with Arduino sensors in a small community garden. We hope that this will impact students by helping them make a difference within their own communities and help develop advocacy skills around food justice issues. We were inspired by the work by Steven Ritz, founder of the Green Bronx Machine in the South Bronx, NYC.

Our project is all about action! Students will be working together with people that are master gardeners and people that are knowledgeable about the Chesapeake Bay watershed in seeking guidance on how our part of the frog area helps contribute towards the Chesapeake Bay. Our lessons will be shared directly with the classroom Earth Science teachers in Earth Science grade 6, which will, in turn, be passed on to the students and be shared in a meaningful, relevant, real-world manner.
