Our garden was flourishing last year. The children were very excited to share in the Harvest as well as all of the work that needed doing to keep the garden healthy. I would love to replicate that experience again this year. Anyone that visits our school can see our beautification first hand.

The PLAN for the next three years: 2018, 2019, and 2020. Yield of avocados and oranges depends upon climate. Will we or won't we have rain? Because our trees are mature, their roots run deep. Trees do well with 15 minutes of water from two sprinklers once a week. Avocado tree provides seeds that sprout easily. Morning dew collected in rain barrel is used to water seeds. Going forward in 2018, avocado seeds will be sprouted to create plants to donate. Oranges will continue to be harvested and donated.

We would love to have a garden to table cooking club. We would use this mini-grant to purchase classroom cooking materials. We will harvest from our outdoor garden space as well as herbs grown in our classroom. My students have expressed interest in having a before school breakfast cookshop. We have a homeless shelter at our corner, we would love to partner with them and provide needy people with food from our harvest and cooking club.

My project will enable vegetable growth around my neighborhood, which currently is so desert-like that it is almost impossible to grow anything in the dirt. I will get a compost bin and put leftover food in it, that will then be composted into dirt that I can use for my plants. I will also build a bed for all of my vegetables, so that they will grow, without the struggle of unhealthy dirt. I can use my veggies for eating healthier, and I might even sell some to others, to encourage everyone else to eat healthy and organic.

I would like to hold a community clean up event on a Saturday as well as ask for tool donations. We will need to fertilize the soil in preparation for planting. We will plant seasonal vegetables that the students can grow, harvest, and eat. I live close to the school so I can look after the garden during long breaks. There are many fellow staff members willing to help and my class will be in charge of the area.
