Our project will help us provide and set up composting bins in various class rooms and other locations on campus. Our aim is to teach students the science behind composting and to get them excited about building their own compost so that the collection of left-overs is successful. We will collect bins from school areas on a weekly basis and set-up a designated compost area in our garden. Building and turning our compost pile will become an activity for our garden students to work on regularly! The compost we generate will help the fruits, vegetables, and other plans we grow in our garden to THRIVE!

Most every gardener, dare I say most every human appreciates bees and pollinators. We need them to sustain our very lives. Most of us also aware of the problems of colony collapse and would like to do something even if we don’t have the inclination or location to put up a bee hive. Thankfully there is something we can all do even if we don’t want to become beekeepers and that is create native bee habitat. Planting gardens so that a variety of native bees can not only find a home but find food in a way that is more natural to them, i.e. plant in groupings. There’s so much more to it than just planting a few flowers. Children are our future. The goal is for every school to have an area to plant native flowers. Native flowers help feed bees and are uniquely adapted to their region. Children will learn about the native bees and flowers at school and hopefully will have their own bee habitat at home.

Our project will teach youth about agriculture, local plants, and help them develop gardening skills. It will produce food and flowers for the participants and their family. We will plant and maintain a community garden that participants and community members can contribute resources and volunteer hours. The youth and family members will take turns throughout the planting season to tend to and maintain the gardens.

Our project now has 6 planters with 10 different fruits and vegetables that we expect to give a great harvest. The seedlings are sprouting very well. The students will continue to learn the process of each type of food, follow a timeline for the growth and care, that will lead to learning salesmanship of the harvest. We will then recycle the process with fruits and vegetables for the type of season and continue the process over and over with other students in the school with the goal of reaching them all. We will also be seeking investors for the crops.

We will do soil test, record observations about the growing conditions and select plants based on the results of both. We will make regular observations of the garden so that the children can experience all stages of growth. We will study seeds, roots and sprouts under a dissecting scope and talk about how Roots and Shoots is like what we observe in nature.
