Our project will focus on making our area outside of our classroom more beautiful and safe. Many of our students live in apartments and do not have gardens at home. We want to continue to have this beautiful outdoor area where students can learn about growing vegetables and fruits but we need to replace some of the planters and benches because they are very old. This grant will allow us to continue to have this valuable space for our students.

This garden will produce food for the community. These crops will go to the local food pantry, community kitchen, and senior center, as well as other places that provide food for those who need it. To achieve this, I will have to build an outdoor garden that will be functional during the cold months in New England.

Our project will be that we set up a worm farm in our classroom. We will compost the remains of our snacks to increase the good fertile soil and then put that soil in our school garden. The soil will help promote growth of the vegetables that are being grown to help feed those in need in our community.

The children will attain a recipe for the treats from the sanctuary and bake special healthy treats for the farm animals in February. They will take a field trip to the sanctuary and feed some to the 50 or more injured farm animals, and tour their facility. This close up interaction with the animals, as well as the information learned on the tour will teach the children more about the value of domesticated animals. The children will learn the needs of animals are similar to their own.

Our project will educate the student body on vegan/vegetarian diets by handing out free vegan samples so people can get an idea of what vegans eat and handing out vegan pamphlets and recipes to try at home or with their families. We will also be giving out vegan nutrition guides to people so those who are interested in eating less meat can have a resource of knowledge available to them.

Our children will be planting succulent planters to sell to the employees of Patagonia. Not only will the children be able to create their own planters but they will be able to sell their creations to their parents and family that work here at our center. The money collected will be spent on food to be provided to the Salvation Army Transitional Living Center for Thanksgiving.

In this garden, we offer hands on science lessons where we talk about the dynamics of ecosystems and discuss the individual plants in the garden. The students can also come into the garden during lunch and other breaks to maintain the garden, water the plants, or just hang out.
