The goals are to create a clean, protected and healthy local ecosystem for the amphibians to flourish. This includes: 1) Restoring a large pond in the middle of the community garden 2) Restoring the areas around the pond with the addition of frog-friendly landscaping/beautification of the garden 3) Translocation of 50 tadpoles- ten each from five local temporary or permanent ponds in different areas of the Bay Area (genetic variability) 4) Daily monitoring of tadpoles in various stages of development, tracking of young adults into breeding age 5) Connecting with other Amphibian programs to share data and research methodologies 6) Connecting to local school programs to introduce students to conservation biology and pond ecosystems 7) Ongoing data as population becomes stable 8) Collecting tadpoles for captive breeding program for the re-introduction into other ponds and areas deemed safe for amphibians 9) Long-term management of populations

My 4 previous third grade classes realized that seed balls made gardening easy, fun, and accessible. They learned that seed balls grow endangered wildflowers needed by pollinators, protect seeds from wind, birds, squirrels, and other critters, and has easy dispersal for more uniform coverage. They also discovered that “planting” the seed balls sometimes didn’t involve a shovel – sometimes, they could be tossed “guerrilla-style” while on hikes in our local park areas. In addition to all these benefits, this year’s class would like to partner up with a first grade class, their “Study Buddies,” and show them how to hand roll the seed balls, too, hopefully “planting the seed” of knowledge that even smaller hands than an 8-year old’s can have a BIG impact on their surrounding environment.

By having students engage in creating their school garden, we as educators are not only fostering critical thinking and leadership skills in them, but we are promoting collaboration, stewardship, and compassion among a future generation of leaders. Our project will begin as soon as classes resume (August 19th, 2019) and will consist of students designing, building, planting, and diligently and consistently caring for the garden. Students will also sharpen their observation, writing and communication skills, by illustrating, recording, taking pictures, and keeping a journal of this project-based learning experience. Students will be hosting assemblies throughout the year, to teach other students and members of their community about the importance of learning about and preserving our natural resources; this will enhance their oral communication and public speaking skills.
