We will grow, harvest and deliver our fresh veggies and herbs once a month during growing season.
We are constructing a box for our school. In this box we will collect german "Pfandflaschen" directly translatet to "deposit bottles". For every bottle you get in Germany 25cent back. These bottles will be recycled. We donate the money to Mary´s Meals. With 25cent you can support a child 5 days with food!

We offer educational activities to children and youth. These are advertised in schools, magazines and newpsapers, facebook, by word-of-mouth and by fliers in public spaces. There is a vast array of topics that go on around the year/s and parents and teaches phone our office to book a topic for a certain day and time. • Saving seeds for the future • The Web of Life – a game - Jenga and string • Garden Warriors – identifying pests and disease and what to do about controlling them naturally • Guerrilla Gardening – seed bombs • Propagating plants from seeds and slips • Using your senses – taste, smell, feel, hear, see • Be a water-wise kid - how to make water go a long way • How does Nature conserve water – the Water Cycle. Magic of the water game. • Weird and wonderful water wildlife – snail eggs/planarians/whirly gig beetles, pond skaters, mosquito larvae, dragonfly larvae, mayflies, fish. Life near the surface • Looking at the life cycle of an insect in our garden. Make a dragonfly/or any other insect mask • Make a hot box/hay box • Natural Predators in our garden • How plants travel Eating the best food posssible - eating raw Spouting and microgreens Fermented foods and much, much more These is a charge for each of these workshops, but we are busy looking for sponsorships for children in the underprivileged schools in our city so that they may also attend them
We will build a garden in the back yard of the school that is fenced to keep out the deer that are prevalent eaters here, with raised beds to be used for planting in the spring of 2018. The garden will be built by parent volunteers from our school, including members of the newly formed Green Committee. The design for the garden will be a collaborative effort between parents, teachers, and children.
Our project will be that we set up a worm farm in our classroom. We will compost the remains of our snacks to increase the good fertile soil and then put that soil in our school garden. The soil will help promote growth of the vegetables that are being grown to help feed those in need in our community.
We would like to develop a series of presentations around environmental justice issues, such as climate change, alternative energy, and food justice. We feel that our community is not as knowledgeable about these serious issues.
The DMS Green Team will build a compost bin, begin collecting food waste from the cafeteria, place the food waste (along with dried leaves and grass) in the bin, work the piles of waste until it becomes compost, and then apply the compost to our vegetable and native plant gardens. Students will track the amount of food waste coming from the cafeteria to the compost bin, measure the volume and temperature during the composting process, then be a part of applying the compost to the gardens.
We will be measuring the amount of compost that is produced every week and track the usage of compost over time. We also hope to survey students on whether they actually use the composting bins that we have implemented. Finally, as a last measure, we will do soil testing through our AP Environmental Science class to see whether the composting regions are more nutrient rich.
