This project will help out our community, because we will grow crops then we will being then to a donation center so people in our community in need can get them.
it will spread a message by me talking to kids all over the world
our wish is to help poor people by giving them food and water.
Students collaborated and researched the types of fruits and vegetables that they could potentially grow at a school site with limited access to water, but that will be provide the necessary nutrition that will sustain them...at least until lunch time. They looked at types of window boxes and amount of sun needed, etc., on a limited budget as well. Once we had that information and shared in around our conference table, the real work began. So far, students have planted strawberries, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, cucumber, and kale. They even have a lime tree, and a grape vine! The next step is to care for the plants until harvest, all the while looking for recipes that students can easily prepare. The ultimate goal is to create food oases around our campus that provide healthy snacks for our school community! Meanwhile, we have to identify and (possibly) design a way to collect water so that our oases remain sustainable. We're looking for ways to collect rainwater and to bring water to our gardens that will follow our school's and school district's guidelines, so that this project will prove to be a beneficial one to the entire student population.
Our project is to grow vegetables in an aquaponics system. Goldfish will also grow to help produce the proper amounts of nitrogen to cycle through the system and help sustain the growth of our plants. We will complete water testing for nutrients and pH levels to make sure our plants and fish are happy and healthy.
This project consists of a series of 6 gardening classes throughout the summer where we demonstrate and engage youth ages 2-8 in planting, growing and eating foods such as: peas, carrots strawberries and melons. Each tot receives a 2'x2' area in a community garden plot to plant seeds and harvest their own food. We also have a strawberry patch where tots learn to pick and eat fresh, sweet & juicy strawberries! Each tot starts off the season by painting their name on a brick to mark their spot in the garden. We offer fresh snacks, usually donations from other gardeners, every class. We also have a short story about planting and growing food at the end of each class :)
Our TaylorAde Healthy Kids (THKC)Project will support our community wide healthy eating initiative. Our THKC members will be responsible for promoting healthy eating habits by conducting informative, fun, healthy eating workshops weekly. By creating healthy eating posters to post around schools, and public family friendly spaces will help inform recruitment of parent and student volunteers to help promote awareness the hunger issues and encourage healthy eating habits in the East Brooklyn Community. We will offer nutritious eating workshops for parents, children and seniors as well provide informational resources to food pantries and food supplement centers. We are very interested in partnering with the Food Bank of NY to provide Healthy Bucks for Families in need. By partnering with the Food Bank, THKC will receive exposure through our comprehensive media campaigns, event and campaign materials, website, quarterly newsletter and monthly E-Newsletter. Food Bank For New York City offers dynamic partnership opportunities from our high profile organizations and media outlets all to help end hunger throughout the five boroughs.
We will grow organic food for student families and those in need. The process will go through an entire growing season to instill the processes necessary to growing healthy organic food in a community garden. We will appoint team leaders that will have specific responsiblities as well as individual responsiblities given to students for proper plant management. A Garden Manager will provide weekly guidance and lessons that incorporate soil sampling, proper watering regimens as well as pest management that will be put into ACTION to instill confidence in our children through growing food, reconnection to the soil and a broader understanding of nature.
