The rain garden will filter and soak up the runoff water, so this will prevent erosion, misquote breeding, and beautify the grounds. The rain garden will also provide a space for native plants to flourish which will then provide an environment for native insects. We plan to buy native plants using money raised from school and community fundraisers with approval from our school's administration.

Our photo club will create a variety of small gardens around the school to beautify the environment. We will use current raised flower beds to grow flowers to be transplanted around the campus. The farmer-photographers will document this process and promote this project to all the members of our community.

We would like to repair the pond in our school's outdoor lab so we can stock fish in it. To do this we need to repair a windmill that oxygenates the pond. We would also like to fix up the pavilion located next to the pond so it can be used as an outdoor classroom space, and reintroduce native plants and remove invasive plants in and around the area so it can be better used as an outdoor learning area.

The 8th grade students at Saint Paul the Apostle School will lead the community in a greening project for our campus. They will research, design and create a landscape plan that has positive environmental impact. Working with the administration, teachers, students and drawing from the expertise of our parent community, they will lead the school in implementing the plan culminating in a planting day.

My students will improve upon the garden space as it is right now. They are visiting the Conejo Valley Botanical Garden to take a tour of the native species growing there and to get advice from their expert gardeners. They will be researching what butterflies and plants are native to our local area and make a list of what could be possible to include in our garden. They will meet with the school district's gardener to find out the water restrictions and get advice on how to best use the water designated for this spot in the most appropriate way. Once this is done, they will be working with our school's parent-run EcoTeam to continue to transform this budding garden into a living, learning, native species garden.

We plan to educate our community about why dog waste can be so harmful, and provide them with resources to make the process easier. We think that by reaching out to a local official and convincing them to spend time and resources on this issue, we can make the maximum impact. We have been researching the negative effects of dog waste, the occurrence of uncleaned up dog waste in our community, and how people can do this more effectively.

The project will not only beautify our school landscape but it will teach our students all the steps involved in designing, preparing, and planting native plants. The project will bring our community, parents, and students together in creating a drought tolerant garden.
