We will create spaces for native plants, edible plants, and maintain/beautify existing plants and trees. We intend to share these spaces with the community and create an environment in which students, families, and extended families/community members can enjoy the spaces and benefit from what is grown in the Caroldale Community Garden.

Our goal at MBES is to feed the hungry of Oconee County! Our school has an overarching theme of sustainability, and our third grade is in charge of "feeding" the garden with nutritious compost. We are trying to get all of our school involved in that process so that we can create an efficient process to compost with materials that we use everyday.

Teach teenagers: through workshops and hands on projects. Water garden: rainwater collectors. Group meals: prepare, cook and eat together the produce from the garden. Welcoming space: a green space with chairs and benchs.

Our wish is to come up with a proactive way to reduce water usage and maintain a healthy school garden while incorporating technology.

Turning an empty lot into a lively educational native California edible and pollinator garden that serves students as an outdoor classroom, which also conserves water. Weekly workshops in crop cultivation will fulfill a CSA program that connects 400 low-income community members to farm-fresh produce yearly.

Our project will bring people of all ages together for a common goal in an effort to create a true community. The success of our garden, every year, and of the continuation of the program, depends on support, relationships, communication, compassion -- extremely useful skills in the real world. This garden project will give students unique opportunities for growth, creativity and learning. The opportunity to be in an outdoor classroom with a new environment to study applied math, science and art lessons (without really even knowing it)! This project will connect children to the earth, fostering an understand of the cycle of life, our place in it, the interconnectivity of people and the power of teamwork as well as the value of precious resources -- as basic as water and sunlight. Through support from the community, we will fully develop our native Californian garden to attract the beloved monarch butterfly with new plantings. Our second goal is to establish worm bins, composting and rain barrels.

Alverno students will build a mini aquaponics system for demonstrating aquaponics at outreach events.

We will put in some plumbing on the pipes that leave the sand filter. This new plumbing is a device that will re-route the water into two hoses. The hoses will then run along the fence until they reach our two gardens that have trees

Our group is working to prepare a resilient garden space. We have a small garden space currently, but are trying to expand the space by building bioswales to catch water and divert water from the upcoming El Nino. The students will plant seeds along the bioswale, and divert the water's path so that rather than flooding, the water can be used to water the garden. The project is a cross-curricular project that includes math, science, and environmental studies. Hopefully, the project will grow to include other classes. For the past few years, Los Angeles has experienced drought, and because of this the ground is hard, and plants have died. This coming winter, Los Angeles is projected to have one of the wettest seasons in recent years. Because the drought has left the ground hard-packed, and the plants whose roots prevented erosion on the hillside have died, our campus is in danger of flooding in several areas. We are working on a larger project because we found that our school sits on a covered arroyo that begins at the local high school. We will map the arroyo's path as part of our project. They will work with local historians and archivists to find the path of water as it would have entered our campus before it was paved over. The students will map the path of water on our campus, and use that to work on the bioswales. Several classrooms are prone to flooding, and the water, when it does rain, eventually ends up in storm drains. The students would like to divert the water to benefit the garden rather than having flooding and runoff. We need tools like shovels and spades to construct, seeds to plant, and a couple of cameras to document where water collects, and to take before and after photos.

Beginning September 21 and Finishing at the end of November, 2015. The first week will be design. The second will be construction. The third will be planting. Plants will be edible, symbiotic and sustainable.
