We have acquired a garden box and need to add liner and dirt and flower seeds. We already have three garden boxes devoted to edibles and a garden lab program. We teach over 150 kinder gardeners about growing foods from seeds, healthy dirt and beneficial garden bugs. This project would add a much needed landing pad for butterfly's in the kindergarten area and additional strengthen our program so that we can include teaching about butterfly habitat and life cycles.We would also be providing a much needed resting spot for insects traveling over our heavy paved school.

Our project will benefit monarchs and other butterflies. We will plant a large butterfly garden with lots of milkweed and other host plants for different kinds of butterflies and pollinators as well.

We will invite some parents to help us build the bed. We have community work days, so we could build it then - or during school day.We already grow a lot of food in our garden, you can see our designs for the bed. We might grow purple potatoes or pumpkins in our new bed! Although we have lots of beds that need fixing, we would like to start on rebuilding our first one with a Roots and Shoots campaign and grant!

This year, one of the biggest shortcomings that the students of Roots&Shoots have noticed at Aptitud was the lack of a recycling program. In an effort to start a recycling program, we reached out to the City of San Jose to help get some free recycling supplies. After the City of San Jose provide us with the materials that we needed, including plastic and paper recycling bins, we were able to start a recycling program at Aptitud, and thus show the kids that making a tangible effect on their environment is a reality.

Wildlife is abundant in my area but the numerous storms have driven them away so bringing back resources for them. The creation of food, water and shelter for the many bird and rodent population will increase the wildlife, helping propagate the indigenous plants.

We will start with a training session about what tools we will use to document the trees and how to determine what species they are and what condition they are in. Then we will go out and start documenting some of the trees.
