We will educate teachers and staff about the importance of composting. We will share and distribute composting buckets to each classroom. We will designate a specific place in the garden for a compost pile and build the appropriate container.

We will plant an aromatic garden this summer. The location is a path that many schoolchildren use to walk to school each day. The hope is to have a beautiful surprise for everyone to see and enjoy when they return to school in September. We will add a hammock/swing between the two trees, eye catching trinkets, sparklies, painted rocks and more in the 'fairy garden' tradition.

What The Project Will Do Our project will expose children to slow healthy food. Our project will expose children to positive social interactions. Our project will demonstrate to young children the benefits of group work. Our project will teach young children that their food comes from the earth. Our project will reinforce the importance of children's connection to nature. How We Will Do It We will discuss and problem solve humane ways to keep the ground squirrels and other animals out of the vegetable gardens. We will make a map of the garden plotting the sun exposer of the different garden boxes throughout the day. We will research and determine which herbs and vegetables will grow best in which garden boxes. We will research native plants and incorporate several in the gardens.

For the third year now, the Tom McCall Roots&Shoots group has planned to take 3 field trips to Nana Cardoon Urban Farm and Learning Center. Our primary objective would be to explore and have “hands on” experience with natural food systems. Nana Cardoon offers a rich environment for developing understanding of plant growth, harvest, processing, preservation, and preparation. A secondary objective would be developing deeper connections to our community and its assets. Expanding our understanding of Forest Grove will help us develop meaningful community projects.

Specifically, we'll try to be more animated when standing at the front of the class - making our facial expressions more pronounced, using exaggerated hand gestures, changing the speed, tone and volume of our voice... we're trying it all! We also memorized a few cute tactics to refocus the group, whether this it's a clapping pattern or breathing exercise to calm the kids down, quiet their little mouths, and bring their attention forward.

It is important for us to wrap-up the lesson plan and ask them questions about things they learned. We’re testing out a few ways to do this to see which is more effective – will they respond more enthusiastically one-on-one or as a group? Will they actually be able to answer some of the questions posed to them? Examples: Individually, “can you trace the dinner you ate last night back to the soil?” As a group, “what are some of the behaviors you can do differently at home to make a difference?”

The grandchildren (now ages 4 and 6) help to choose plants, and they help to plant and care for them. They have selected fruit trees to grow and have specified which butterflies to try to attract to the garden. They help to water and to weed and to fill the bird-feeder.

I will write a potential plan, I will approach the P&C in relation to same and if same is approved will invite parents and students to participate. I will start with year 1 - 3 and then move to other years. If the P&C refuses I may approach the City Council for some space to implement the project.

My project would help my family and the environment. I will do it by asking to put a Mulch trash can for lunch and it will be sold for money for our school.
