We work with tribal community elders and culture bearers to document language and tribal ecological knowledge using GIS. We are weaving native cultures into the future!

We will create spaces for native plants, edible plants, and maintain/beautify existing plants and trees. We intend to share these spaces with the community and create an environment in which students, families, and extended families/community members can enjoy the spaces and benefit from what is grown in the Caroldale Community Garden.

Our goal at MBES is to feed the hungry of Oconee County! Our school has an overarching theme of sustainability, and our third grade is in charge of "feeding" the garden with nutritious compost. We are trying to get all of our school involved in that process so that we can create an efficient process to compost with materials that we use everyday.

Our project will provide raised beds for our students to engage in organic gardening. This project will also continue into the summer and include educational opportunities for our students and their families. We plan to work with our Master Gardens in our community.

Our project will bring food production to our campus, and be a wonderful addition to the freight farm vertical hydroponic farm we will be running near it. It will bridge the school to community gap by bringing the community onto campus. Our project has the added bonus of bringing some interest and landscape to a drab Colorado school landscape! We intend to surround the garden with native flowering plants to bring pollinators, and bird houses to attract bluebirds.

This project would offer a good environment while pleasing the eyes of walking traffic and providing a visual beautiful eatable in the courtyard.

We have been learning about colony collapse and how bee populations are rapidly decreasing around the world. We want to play a role in the solution to this problem by planting pollination gardens at our school. We have studied the types of plants that appeal to bees and when they bloom since it is important that the bees have access to appropriate plants throughout the year. This is our class's part in the whole 4th grade project to design and build a full bee sanctuary that will include all the components bees need to thrive. It will also be a beautiful addition to our school grounds and our community.
United States
Our school has lots of gardens where we grow vegetables and flowers. Unfortunately, we have learned that bee populations, which are necessary for pollination and plant growth, are declining around the world. We have researched this issue, and our grade level has decided to plan and build a bee sanctuary behind our school to bring in more mason bees, which do not sting but are excellent pollinators. Our class's contribution will be building bee "hotels" for mason bees and placing them in our bee sanctuary.

I have already created the flower beds where I will plant my herb garden. It already has been weeded and sprayed for fire ants, it just needs small gravel for adequate water drainage and new soil that is healthier and adapted specifically for herbs. Then, I will plant my herbs! I have not yet researched the different climate/soil needs each plant will require, so I have yet to finalize the list for the seeds that I need to purchase. My tentative list of plants is basil, cilantro, oregano, parsley, rosemary, and possibly even sage or dill. It all depends on the different needs of the plants, as the area I am planting in is mostly shady, and the Texas "winter" is coming in a few months. Knowing these things, the list could either get shorter or longer. Once I plant my seeds, I will water them every day, track my progress, and wait for them to grow to maturity!

I will add a compost bin to my neighborhood. I will make/purchase a compost bin and place it in my backyard and open it to my neighbor's biodegradable as well as my own.
