My project will grow food indoors with the use of hydroponics. We will start by getting a growing medium and a bucket large enough to grow several plant at the same time. We will then need to use a water pump to move the water and nutrients around so every plant gets acquitted nutrients thus making it a more successful grow.

I plan on getting these trees to produce fruit for the community, and feed the community with healthy options. I have researched what trees would be able to produce the most fruit in New England. The top 5 trees I'd like to receive funding for is Meyer Lemons, Black Cherries, Apples, Navel Oranges, and Peaches. I have lined up on a Document when these fruits would be ready to harvest off of the trees. From my lay out, every month would be able to harvest at least one fruit.

Part of the beauty of the Grow Baton Rouge YEZ Urban Gardening initiative is that it will help bring our community together and unite them. The “neighborhood sharing” portion of the program seeks to allow youth and community members who grow different things to barter with others to fulfill a full range of vegetables for their households. When people begin to help feed each other, this creates a bond and a certain trust that allows so much more!

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!

We would like to research herbs that would grow in our climate (our school also has a greenhouse), and purchase, plant, and tend to them throughout the year. We would research the health benefits of each herb and record our findings. We would like to find ways to serve our herbs that would be palitable to our students, by creating recipes to enjoy.

The DMS Green Team will build a compost bin, begin collecting food waste from the cafeteria, place the food waste (along with dried leaves and grass) in the bin, work the piles of waste until it becomes compost, and then apply the compost to our vegetable and native plant gardens. Students will track the amount of food waste coming from the cafeteria to the compost bin, measure the volume and temperature during the composting process, then be a part of applying the compost to the gardens.

The project consists of planting herbs and a lettuce plant in two bins. I will water the plants twice a day--in the morning and in the afternoon. They will be in sunlight and I will document through photos their progress with beginning, middle, and end. The project will beautify and teach my family and I how to take care of a garden.

We will build frames over our raised beds. Perhaps we can experiment with various season extenders and determine which work best in our climate and for particular plants. We can build hoop houses and low frames for all of our raised beds and compare growth rate to identify the best season extenders. We can then select plants that are able to withstand colder temperatures and plan healthy meals to prepare with our harvest.

Students will plant and take care of the school garden. They will problem solve as the plants grow and learn about their needs. They will advertise and sell their produce for the purpose of raising money for a local charity in a final "Little Chief Marketplace" at the end of the school year.
