We are building a garden tower out of repurposed goods. We will be learning about permaculture systems to help build a sustainable, thriving garden. Our goal is to keep our garden producing food throughout the year.

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.

Teach teenagers: through workshops and hands on projects. Water garden: rainwater collectors. Group meals: prepare, cook and eat together the produce from the garden. Welcoming space: a green space with chairs and benchs.

This project will engage students on a local environmental issue of their choice and together they will create a performance piece as an awareness campaign for the community.

Sprouts club members will be planting, caring for and harvesting fruits and vegetables from our garden from spring 2016- until Spring 2018. In the process, they will learn what produce is available at what time of the year and how specific edible and pollinator plants grow. They will also learn the needs of plants and how they are not isolated but are a part of a complex system that is relatively easy to maintain. FIRST-DAY of SPROUTS 2017-2018 We are now in the fall school year 2017-2018 and we have harvested several crops from the student garden beds. Wednesday, Sept 6, was the first day of our Sprouts Club. We met at Mrs. Kelly Anderson's 5th-grade classroom after school and discovered a new healthy snack: figs! The scraps from our snacks were collected and used to feed red wriggler worms in our worm tower. This way, nothing was wasted! Students, teachers, and parents harvested tomatoes, long beans, green beans and basil. They even braved the rain to do it! Another group of students created signs to label the garden beds with, thanks to a project of an Eagle Scout candidate and an assistant teacher, Mrs. Angela Gomez. A final group of students looked at an initial map of the garden beds and identified what was in the garden. This was their orientation to mapping. All students used old student notebooks whose pages were still unused. That way, we saved on trees and money! At the end of the day, we took a closer look at the produce we harvested and sketched them (and the worms) in our notebooks. It was a busy first day!

We will bring hydration stations to our school. We will be raising funds by selling reusable water bottles.

Science Club Students will visit local elementary and middle schools to educate students about aquaponics and the global need for sustainable food production and clean water conservation. We will demonstrate how to build a simple aquaponics systems and provide schools with inexpensive materials and seeds to get them started.

My project will take place over the course of a semester and allow students to get points by using reusables in their homeroom classes. At the end of the year, the class with the most points will get a pizza party to celebrate their good efforts.

My project will allow our school (Harrison Jr. High School) to have fresh vegetables in our school lunch every day. The students can also learn form the aquaponics system and how they can make there own at there home.

We will work towards raising awareness of our peers and community about the importance of eating healthy, growing our own food, preserving water and protecting the environment. The students will gain a new understanding about living in harmony with nature.
