We have a 20x20 plot in our neighborhood community garden where we're growing veggies, herbs and flowers.

It will make the Abilene Zoo a more beautiful place. We will take out most of the current plants in the existing garden and add newer, native butterfly friendly plants. Our hope is that more people will want to make their own butterfly gardens at home and we're helping them do that by creating interactive activities.

Students will research, design, create and up-cycle bird, bee, and butterfly houses out of readily available materials and/or recyclable materials. In addition, students will research, plan, and create gardens in our school yard and community that promote bird, bee, butterfly habitats. In the spring, we hope to host a sale to sell the plants that we grow, houses that we created as well as hand out informational and DIY pamphlets on birds, bees, and butterflies and their habitats. The proceeds from this sale will be donated to support a local group in our community/city. The students of Room 32 will collaborate, mentor and teach fellow classrooms at our school to create awareness and promote small actions to protect birds, bees, and butterflies habitats and ecosystems as well as inform them on plants they can plant at home to support our little friends.

Our community garden days will take place every 3rd Saturday of each month. The funding provided by this Roots and Shoots grant will help in cleaning up part of the 24th Street Garden. With this funding, we will purchase materials needed to prepare a section of the garden so that students can plant winter crops.

Our project will focus on making our area outside of our classroom more beautiful and safe. Many of our students live in apartments and do not have gardens at home. We want to continue to have this beautiful outdoor area where students can learn about growing vegetables and fruits but we need to replace some of the planters and benches because they are very old. This grant will allow us to continue to have this valuable space for our students.

Students will work in small groups to plan a beautification plan for our school. Students will research the needs and wants of our school. Students will research and compile a list of trees and plants that grow well in our region here in North Georgia. Students will construct an essay explain steps of research and findings along with a vision plan including illustrations of beautification plan for the school. Each small group will present the completed project to a variety of stake holders to include parents, students and teachers.

It is shown in studies that the way kids grow up affects the way they live the rest of their lives. When we see our community, we see ourselves in a way. We see the good parts and the bad parts. We see the kids playing in the parks, we see our cars, our homes, our schools, the buildings we work in. But, we also see the parts in us that we can improve on. One way we can improve the community is put in a garden. Our group of seven student plan to do a flower garden in the front of our school and put a vegetable garden in the back of the school. We think that putting this in could improve our school and the spirit that we have for it. One small change can make a big difference.
