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 KYE-YAC CLUBHOUSE will be designed to inspire youth and engage them in science through exploration, investigation, play, and literacy. We will have weekly programs aimed at inspiring pre-school children to have compassion for the earth and all life that inhabits it. It will be specifically designed for encouraging preschool-aged children to meaningfully examine and experience the everyday world around them. We will have the KYE-YAC CLUBHOUSE present innovative learning opportunities in a safe environment. The focal point of the new exhibit will be a unique “tree house” which toddlers can climb around and explore. Next to the treehouse, local artists will create an original mural depicting a giant tree with three-dimensional leaves filling the walls with native animals and birds - adding visual stimulation to further spark the curiosity of young “scientots” as they explore the world around them. Age appropriate books will be available to foster literacy based learning and programs will be held several times a week with science projects, crafts, reading, and play!

This year, one of the biggest shortcomings that the students of Roots&Shoots have noticed at Aptitud was the lack of a recycling program. In an effort to start a recycling program, we reached out to the City of San Jose to help get some free recycling supplies. After the City of San Jose provide us with the materials that we needed, including plastic and paper recycling bins, we were able to start a recycling program at Aptitud, and thus show the kids that making a tangible effect on their environment is a reality.
