By obtaining umbrellas for our garden, we will create a comfortable classroom space where students can learn about growing their own food, plant life, the environment and giving back to our community.

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.

We planted Emperor Tulip bulbs, like others have done around the world. Because we live in zone 8, the protocol called for us to refrigerate our bulbs to ensure a proper wintering. We also chose to run an experiment with a second bed of bulb. These we planted November 1st. The other bed we planted January 10 (as the protocol asked for). We created journals to record observations as to when they emerged and when they bloomed. This data we reported to Journey North. It was interesting to find that the earlier planted bulbs (experiment bed) emerged first and bloomed first, but they did not look as healthy as the later planted bulbs. They were a bit twisted and stunted. The wintering of bulbs did make a difference!

We will get various type of plants to plant outside in this garden. These plants should be able to resist the elements. We will also use various tools such as shovels to help us dig holes. We are planning on putting many rocks around the garden with positive messages on them. Lastly, we will put benches and other areas to sit in for students in the garden.

Change the habits of people through example. It is a community service project. If I see garbage that "someone" throws, I take a picture of it, I pick it up, I throw it where it belongs and I take a picture again. Using the layout application I upload them to a facebook group called: Leave it better that what we found. It's a closed group were I try to encourage people to do the same or at least think twice before throwing waste on the street.

We are starting a 2 week environmental leadership summer program for teens in North Florida. They will explore North Florida's wild places- from our springs to our swamps- on fun educational adventures, restoring them by working alongside the Alachua Conservation Trust NGO on hands-on conservation projects from planting longleaf pine trees to maintaining nature trails, and become leaders for them through workshops on leadership and careers in the environment. It will be affordable and aimed towards students from a wide range of backgrounds. See our website and apply at: https://www.walkforwildflorida.org/young-leaders-for-wild-florida
