My class has chosen to focus on pollinator awareness. We've started a small apiary in the school and working on increasing public awareness. My students are learning to keep honeybees, extract and bottle honey, and use beeswax to make products. Our current obstacle is to increase the availability of pollinating plants by planting fruit and nut trees in the school park

The project, growing, planting and harvesting will take three months. We have an existing garden and four classes that come in. We'll get the seeds, have the kids plant them and care for them and tend to them, and keep a record of what they see and learn in their garden journals.

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.

School-groups and community members will be invited to help with the project to raise awareness of runoff problems. Signs will be posted on the property so all visitors will be able to learn about the riparian buffer, and how riparian buffers can be created on their own properties.
