Our "Help Our Garden" project consists of beautifying our school garden by painting our wooden garden crates and making a welcoming banner to place at the entrance of the garden with the hope of attracting more visitors so they can take advantage of the fruits and vegetables that we grow there. We also help to sustain our garden by buying more seeds and gardening supplies.

Our project will fund the purchase of various vegetable and fruit plants and trees. We will also be able to purchase soil and other materials to fund our School Garden.

Students will begin planting indoors as part of the after school program. They will research what plants they want to grow and how much space they will need. They will also be learning about composting and what to collect. The Recycle Team will be collecting items to make bird feeders and other recycle sculptures that can be displayed in the courtyard. In the Spring the gardening program will begin and students will learn about their garden from "food to table". They will maintain the garden and keep journals to measure all aspects of garden .

We have spent the last month researching greenhouses and native gardens. We identified plants we'd like to use, and created 3D model of our planned greenhouse. We created a pamphlet that incorporated all of the information we gathered. Then, we scheduled a meeting with our principal for January 3rd. We will discuss with him the feasibility of our ideas and gain his input on how we may best carry out our project.

As a class we will be making measurements of the land area and brainstorming ways to beatify the area. We know we want to add plants, but we also know that we need to control for runoff and possibly rebuild the walls holding up the levels of the land which are there to prevent ground erosion. We hope to work with the the parks department to have a trash can put in nearby or in the park to cut down on pollution left by people walking through the neighborhood.

The students will map out the school's organic garden footprint and the resources needed. The students will research and identify native flora, fauna and grass species, as well as the climate in deciding which plants to grow throughout the year and it will be organically maintained and naturally sustainable. Our drought will create awareness and the need to provide solutions for water conservation. This project will empower students to share and present the dangers of using toxic pesticides, especially for purely cosmetic reasons to the local HOAs in their community. They will also present the benefits of organic gardening and non-toxic solutions to the board in hopes that they will switch to organic landscaping. This organic school garden will help their problem solving skills, presenting skills and hopefully their gardening skills.

Currently, we have a Sensory Garden outside of our classroom. This garden was built in 2014 by our special needs students. Since then, it has become over grown and not maintained. With this grant, we will be able to buy the supplies to revamp our sensory garden. The garden will need plants that you can see, touch, taste, and smell. We will also need new wind chimes for the hearing station.

We hope our project will spark the conversation on healthy eating. Fresh organic food is very hard to come by in most Los Angeles communities. This garden space will act as an inspiration peace as well as a full learning experience for all participants. We will engage with family and community members in planting all trees during the Halloween season.

Our students will build planters on our school. They will germinate seeds, transplant to a smaller planter, and then plant in our garden. The students will learn how to care for their plants. They will be responsible for creating another garden somewhere else in the community after they learn now to care for the garden.

We will create a local and sustainable food system where families are able to access more fresh produce to incorporate in meals at home and create new learning opportunities for students at school! We'll be working with parents, students, local businesses, non-profit groups, members of the Garden Committee team, and district personal to get our mission accomplished! We will also be creating a Colorado native plants garden therefore providing bees and butterflies a home and place to thrive.
