The RECO Club will begin growing food (suitable fruits and vegetables) as well as ornamentals in our school's rooftop greenhouse. We will try to develop diverse growing systems using aquaponics and soil/container gardening. Our school will look for funding to renovate the greenhouse for the longterm goal of adapting an urban agriculture curriculum for students with disabilities. In the meantime, students are looking to begin growing and caring for plants while learning about urban sustainability and biology. The RECO Club will also be taking on environmental campaigns and community service in NYC.

Are project is to grow crops on the unused government grassland that could be used as great farming land. We want to take advantage of this land and grow wonderful crops for the schools, homeless, and the kids in need. We will meet at the Boone county jail and the inmates considered as terrible people, could be useful in the community. We will use the land right outside of the jail. The land is an open grassland great for growing crops.

Our project will give us more growing space to allow more children to be involved and to be able to grow even more food to bless others with! With this grant we will be able to purchase more lumber to construct the beds and more perennials to our Carolina Fence Garden. We will have teachers, parents and children volunteer to build the beds and to plant the new plants.

Second Grade is researching and designing mini greenhouses to attempt to grow food year round. Our students are in the research phase right now. We are planning to experiment with different designs and materials to see which type of greenhouse provides the maximum results. The students will collect data to keep track of temperature and humidity levels inside their greenhouses.
