Currently, we have a Sensory Garden outside of our classroom. This garden was built in 2014 by our special needs students. Since then, it has become over grown and not maintained. With this grant, we will be able to buy the supplies to revamp our sensory garden. The garden will need plants that you can see, touch, taste, and smell. We will also need new wind chimes for the hearing station.

We hope our project will spark the conversation on healthy eating. Fresh organic food is very hard to come by in most Los Angeles communities. This garden space will act as an inspiration peace as well as a full learning experience for all participants. We will engage with family and community members in planting all trees during the Halloween season.

Our students will build planters on our school. They will germinate seeds, transplant to a smaller planter, and then plant in our garden. The students will learn how to care for their plants. They will be responsible for creating another garden somewhere else in the community after they learn now to care for the garden.

This project would impact the students to clean up their surroundings and have knowledge on these rodenticides. We had Poison Free Malibu come to our school to have a lecture on this topic. We contacted the organization to make arrangements and held it in one of our school theaters.

We will create a local and sustainable food system where families are able to access more fresh produce to incorporate in meals at home and create new learning opportunities for students at school! We'll be working with parents, students, local businesses, non-profit groups, members of the Garden Committee team, and district personal to get our mission accomplished! We will also be creating a Colorado native plants garden therefore providing bees and butterflies a home and place to thrive.

This project will increase awareness of the environment and natural resources available in our town and county. The Hyndman Greenhearts will utilize the school greenhouse to provide environmental education to elementary school children, grow plants to be used in community beautification and speak to various groups around town about environmental preservation in our community.

The project will give seniors and youth the opportunity to work together to plant flowers and harvest fruits/vegetables/herbs in their communities. We will partner with an existing community garden that will donate raised beds for us to garden during the Spring and Summer. We have Girl Scouts ( ages 4 - 14) and seniors (ages 65 & up) from the community-at-large that will work together to tend the garden (physical activity) and once crops are ready to harvest, the yield will be distributed amongst project participants and the community-at-large. We will also have a chef/nutritionist who will have cooking demos to show us how to prepare healthy meals from what we grew.

Students and teachers turn and monitor compost, checking pH, temp, and other soil variables. The DOOR Program will be working closely with the ecology club to monitor the process and create some wonderful compost!
