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.

Hawlemont's playground is the only public park in the town. We having been working over the past few years to add gardens and fruit trees for the town's enjoyment. The gardens and trees not only beautify the park but add healthy fruits and vegetables for the community to enjoy. We are hoping to be able to plant several more fruit trees and continue to add and enhance our gardens. This year we would like to plant 5 new fruit trees and add a raised bed for a tomato garden on the side of our barn.

Our garden was flourishing last year. The children were very excited to share in the Harvest as well as all of the work that needed doing to keep the garden healthy. I would love to replicate that experience again this year. Anyone that visits our school can see our beautification first hand.

I would like to hold a community clean up event on a Saturday as well as ask for tool donations. We will need to fertilize the soil in preparation for planting. We will plant seasonal vegetables that the students can grow, harvest, and eat. I live close to the school so I can look after the garden during long breaks. There are many fellow staff members willing to help and my class will be in charge of the area.

The Barr Middle School project will teach students about plants, insects, and growing vegetables. Students are planning the layout of the garden, the kind of plants they will use, preparing a proposal to submit, and raising money to fund the project. Step two will be to purchase plants, prepare soil, and plant the garden. Students will set up a schedule for summer care.

We have a 20x20 plot in our neighborhood community garden where we're growing veggies, herbs and flowers.

Our project will focus on making our area outside of our classroom more beautiful and safe. Many of our students live in apartments and do not have gardens at home. We want to continue to have this beautiful outdoor area where students can learn about growing vegetables and fruits but we need to replace some of the planters and benches because they are very old. This grant will allow us to continue to have this valuable space for our students.

We are rehabilitating 6 raised garden beds at the Zoller School and also planting a butterfly garden outside the preschool and kindergarten classrooms.
United States
We will invite some parents to help us build the bed. We have community work days, so we could build it then - or during school day.We already grow a lot of food in our garden, you can see our designs for the bed. We might grow purple potatoes or pumpkins in our new bed! Although we have lots of beds that need fixing, we would like to start on rebuilding our first one with a Roots and Shoots campaign and grant!
