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.

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.

Our garden brought back life to the corner of our school that was ignored. Students saw us after school and came to see what we were doing. The extra food went to families in our community, and a girl who saw us joined our Girl Scout troop!

We bought a tomato plant, two types of lettuce plants, and two types of mint plants and planted them in Mackenzie's side yard. We use organic soil with manure in it and organic fertilizer. We will keep watering and fertilizing the plants and hopefully they will grow!

Our project will grow flowers, crops, and provide students with opportunities to design and develop new ideas. The students' designs and ideas are all discussed and implemented through their special classes such as tech ed, art, PE, Family Consumer Science, and Library Science.

I am going to plant a vegetable garden in my backyard. I'm going to plant lettuce, onion, spinach, and carrots. First I'm going to grow the seeds inside tell they sprout and then I will plant them outside each in a different pots, where they will get plenty of sun. Every day I will check on the plant's growth and water them.

We will sprout and plants avocado seeds with our environmental club on an ongoing basis.
