16 of our classrooms will each be assigned a garden bed (or a portion of a garden bed) as well as a part of the outdoor learning space to cultivate and maintain. Classes will work during their scheduled time on a weekly basis. Classes will tie curriculum and Missouri State Learning Standards to their work in the garden, bringing together language arts, math, science, and social studies to their experiences in the outdoor classroom.

For this project, we will first need to get land somewhere that is convenient and accessible to all people. We may have to write a letter to the government to provide us with this piece of land, and raise donations for other expenses. After that, for a whole day or more, we will welcome members of the community to help prepare and plant the park. After everything has grown- which should take no more than 3 months-, the park will be open to the public. To maintain the park, it will be divided into different sections and each section will be put up for adoption, so the park will be run by the community. We will also employ the local unemployed people in the community to help maintain the park.

I am doing a wax museum to learn about Jane Goodall. The students in my school will be given some gloves and a bag to clean up. They will have a week to clean up as many streets as they can. Everyone is also encouraged to recycle if they are able to. Thank you for making our streets and our world a better place!

We read one of Jane Goodall's favorite childhood books, The Eagle and the Wren. This is a beautiful story about how we all need the help of other people. We decorated pots and planted seeds with the residents at the Carrington House.

We have weeded and 'sheet mulched' the bed, adding ample compost. We have selected a variety of plants that will attract a wide variety of insects. The next step is finding the plants and planting. We hope to feature 'Showy Milkweed' to attract & support Monarch Butterflies, that once traveled through Oregon on the way to Canada. Years ago the Milkweed was wiped-out and as a result the Monarch migration ended. We hope to be part of the 'waystations' designed to re-establish this migration.
