The Problem

A lack of appreciation for the beautiful natural spaces that surround our school; we have an opportunity to convert a part of this space into a garden that benefits the school and the surrounding community. Through this project, we hope to spread awareness about cultivating plants, learning to care for living organisms, and incorporating healthy foods into our diets. This will be a collaborative, student-led project.

Our Plan

To offer students a hands-on learning opportunity that allows them to explore botany. To develop student responsibility, accountability, and cooperation. To increase morale and pride in our school. To grow a beautiful and functional garden. To find new opportunities to expand and utilize the garden.
