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!

The project consists of planting herbs and a lettuce plant in two bins. I will water the plants twice a day--in the morning and in the afternoon. They will be in sunlight and I will document through photos their progress with beginning, middle, and end. The project will beautify and teach my family and I how to take care of a garden.

This project would offer a good environment while pleasing the eyes of walking traffic and providing a visual beautiful eatable in the courtyard.

I have already created the flower beds where I will plant my herb garden. It already has been weeded and sprayed for fire ants, it just needs small gravel for adequate water drainage and new soil that is healthier and adapted specifically for herbs. Then, I will plant my herbs! I have not yet researched the different climate/soil needs each plant will require, so I have yet to finalize the list for the seeds that I need to purchase. My tentative list of plants is basil, cilantro, oregano, parsley, rosemary, and possibly even sage or dill. It all depends on the different needs of the plants, as the area I am planting in is mostly shady, and the Texas "winter" is coming in a few months. Knowing these things, the list could either get shorter or longer. Once I plant my seeds, I will water them every day, track my progress, and wait for them to grow to maturity!
