We will purchase native, drought tolerant seeds and plants and plant them then tend to them on our campus to encourage increased biodiversity of flora and fauna. This will also beautify our campus.

The project, growing, planting and harvesting will take three months. We have an existing garden and four classes that come in. We'll get the seeds, have the kids plant them and care for them and tend to them, and keep a record of what they see and learn in their garden journals.

Our garden was flourishing last year. The children were very excited to share in the Harvest as well as all of the work that needed doing to keep the garden healthy. I would love to replicate that experience again this year. Anyone that visits our school can see our beautification first hand.

The PLAN for the next three years: 2018, 2019, and 2020. Yield of avocados and oranges depends upon climate. Will we or won't we have rain? Because our trees are mature, their roots run deep. Trees do well with 15 minutes of water from two sprinklers once a week. Avocado tree provides seeds that sprout easily. Morning dew collected in rain barrel is used to water seeds. Going forward in 2018, avocado seeds will be sprouted to create plants to donate. Oranges will continue to be harvested and donated.

We would love to have a garden to table cooking club. We would use this mini-grant to purchase classroom cooking materials. We will harvest from our outdoor garden space as well as herbs grown in our classroom. My students have expressed interest in having a before school breakfast cookshop. We have a homeless shelter at our corner, we would love to partner with them and provide needy people with food from our harvest and cooking club.

My project will enable vegetable growth around my neighborhood, which currently is so desert-like that it is almost impossible to grow anything in the dirt. I will get a compost bin and put leftover food in it, that will then be composted into dirt that I can use for my plants. I will also build a bed for all of my vegetables, so that they will grow, without the struggle of unhealthy dirt. I can use my veggies for eating healthier, and I might even sell some to others, to encourage everyone else to eat healthy and organic.

we will (with permission) replenish vacant and undesirable spots with beautiful sweet-smelling wildflowers for the bees and for US!

Our project is all about action! Students will be working together with people that are master gardeners and people that are knowledgeable about the Chesapeake Bay watershed in seeking guidance on how our part of the frog area helps contribute towards the Chesapeake Bay. Our lessons will be shared directly with the classroom Earth Science teachers in Earth Science grade 6, which will, in turn, be passed on to the students and be shared in a meaningful, relevant, real-world manner.

My students and I would work with our Technology/Construction staff in the design and construction of two wooden work tables that would be built between three trees. Students would be responsible for all of the work....from researching designs, what type of wood will be needed, to the actual construction of the work tables!

Our project will be to collect plastic water bottles from around the school and use the proceeds to fund the planting of trees in Haiti.
