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 DMS Green Team will build a compost bin, begin collecting food waste from the cafeteria, place the food waste (along with dried leaves and grass) in the bin, work the piles of waste until it becomes compost, and then apply the compost to our vegetable and native plant gardens. Students will track the amount of food waste coming from the cafeteria to the compost bin, measure the volume and temperature during the composting process, then be a part of applying the compost to the gardens.

The project consists of planting herbs and a lettuce plant in two bins. I will water the plants twice a day--in the morning and in the afternoon. They will be in sunlight and I will document through photos their progress with beginning, middle, and end. The project will beautify and teach my family and I how to take care of a garden.

We will build frames over our raised beds. Perhaps we can experiment with various season extenders and determine which work best in our climate and for particular plants. We can build hoop houses and low frames for all of our raised beds and compare growth rate to identify the best season extenders. We can then select plants that are able to withstand colder temperatures and plan healthy meals to prepare with our harvest.

Students will plant and take care of the school garden. They will problem solve as the plants grow and learn about their needs. They will advertise and sell their produce for the purpose of raising money for a local charity in a final "Little Chief Marketplace" at the end of the school year.

This project will be used at the school by creating a school garden, of plants that are fruit and vegetables using organic dirt. Students will be able to watch the process of strawberries, apple trees, and tomatoes starting from a flower to a small sized berry. Students will watch the stages that it takes for strawberries and others to grow. In addition, students will help put weeds and water the strawberries as a community involvement. Also, students will learn how each fruit is grown differently and other fruit are healthy for your bodies.

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!
United States
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.
