Our project will clean up the school garden which has been left untouched for 2 years and fix the rampant weeds that continue to grow there.

Activities will begin once teachers return to school the end of July. Students will come to school and help with the harvesting prior to the beginning of the school year in mid August. Students will prepare the soil for weeding, hoeing and replanting. Once school starts students and teachers sign up of class graden time to go out to help work in the garden. When our families come to school, community members and school district employees come to our school they will be taken on a garden tour by the student and class who are in charge of the garden at the time of the visit. This project will enable all of our students and teachers to have a vested interest in the outcome of our garden, the produce, protecting its beauty and securing students will have access to eat the produce from our garden.

School gardens provide a wide range of benefits to both the student gardeners and the broader school community. For students, school gardens serve as living classrooms that teach lessons as simple as "where our food comes from" to complex lessons on ecology, resource management, nutrition and healthy lifestyles. The goal of this action is to encourage and support the creation and maintenance of school gardens. In order to earn points for this action, the garden needs to have been active during the current or previous growing season and include plantings that produce fruits, vegetables and/or herbs that could be consumed by students. The garden must be utilized to teach environmental and/or nutrition education involving students interacting with the garden for learning activities during the school year.

I would like to purchase planters to hold the veggies; watermelon, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, okra and strawberries. The children and I will go to Lowes or Home Depot and purchase the plants, pots, dirt and fertilizer. Each child would choose and plant their plants individually with assistance. When the plant is matured and healthy the children can take the plants home with instructions to care for their plants.

We are going to enclose and cultivate an unexploited piece of land at the yard behind the school. At the beginning of the project the help of the village community will be essential. The pupils will seed and adopt this piece of land throughout the year. In the school garden we will plant ornamental flowers, fruit trees and vegetables. Later, when the shoots grow, we will organize a day of healthy diet and focus on the importance of vegetables and fruits. This event will be open to the all the residents of the village and the local authorities.

I have the support of Dr. King, Country Trails principle and my third grade teacher Mrs. Robinson. Our club will meet once a month. Anyone in the school can join in if they would like. We will cover all areas of science. We will also do things that will benefit the local community. Examples of this would be an earth day clean up, as well as growing a vegetable garden, and donating the food to a local food pantry.
