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.

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.

Our community garden days will take place every 3rd Saturday of each month. The funding provided by this Roots and Shoots grant will help in cleaning up part of the 24th Street Garden. With this funding, we will purchase materials needed to prepare a section of the garden so that students can plant winter crops.

We'll clean up litter from a hiking trail by our school. Then we'll put up a no-littering sign!
United States
We will gather a small group and visit local areas where littering is evident. For example, the trails in Steiner Ranch. We will walk through the trail and clean up trash and also plant flower seeds to help beautify the surrounding area.
