What is your wish for this project?
Our hope is the beautify the location around the local community garden. We hope to clean up and make the ground a better environment for plants to live in. Depending on funding we are hoping to add flowering native plants to the area to beautify the landscape and make the garden more environmentally friendly to bees and butterflies which help to pollinate our vegetables which are being grown for the community and the local food pantry.
How did it go?
The garden rehabilitation was successful in that students were able to design there own layout for the garden and put in vegetable plants. Not only did students complete work in the garden that they set out to do, but they sparked the interest of other classmates, school staff, and community members. Now more people are stopping by the garden to visit and help out and a new project is beginning to support the local stray cat population.
