This garden will receive 8 raised beds, placed into the orchard garden. We will teach students to build the raised beds, install drip irrigation, seed crops. Students will learn to compost as we install a compost bin, cultivate the crops and the fruit trees. Students will learn abut water schedule, thinning seedlings, grow harvest to prepare a wholesome meal.

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.

The goal of this project was to raise awareness about changes that anyone can make to reduce their carbon footprint, while also uniting our school's community through a plant giveaway. We created two kinds of booklets that we gave away along with the plants: one about how to support native plants and pollinators, and another about how to reduce your carbon footprint. We hoped that this project would raise awareness about the impact that an individual can have on the planet.

We are located on a USDA research facility (although no funding for this project is from them), and have a lot of space to expand our bee program and project. Our high school students are interested in creating a program and a traveling trunk for younger students to learn about bees. We know that the population of honey bees is decreasing all of the time. Since we are a STEM center with programming for school age children and community stakeholders, we are going to develop kid-friendly information to help maintain and increase the bee population in our area. We have researched the type of foliage we need to plant, the equipment needed for our project, signage we need around the property, safety precautions, and citizen science activities about bees. Our students will be completing all of these research topics and putting them into action.

We will collect food scraps from campus, process them in a three-bin system and turn the food scraps into compost over a three month period. We will be diverting food scraps from the landfill and utilizing the developed compost in our garden.

We hope to buy signage for the garden, decorate our garden and help to buy new plants for the Winter months.

We will organize community cleanups every other week, river cleanups when needed, and tree planting events when needed and allowed to by the city! We will gather volunteers, advertise often and effectively, and form community bonds and friendships all while defending our dear environment.

At the end of very visible 1st street in Missoula, Montana, we would love to implement a permaculture yard to reclaim the soil and demonstrate the power of plants. We want to hire a local mural artist to beautify the building. We want to build a large outdoor compost system to process urban food waste, educate locals on the power of composting, and give back finished soil to the city. We have big dreams and need some financial support.

We will research the best plants to feed bees and butterflies over winter and source either seeds or plants. When miss 4 graduates from kindergarten instead of anything plastic or things like balloons etc she will give everyone seeds or a plant with instructions to all of the children. She will also stand up and tell everyone how to look after them.

We are planting some native plants of Hunterdon County in front of our school, Robert Hunter Elementary School. Students have already researched about the importance of native plants and their impact on local habitats. Then students participated in a "Bio Blitz" of the area and took notes of what was already there and what was needed. We hope that the pollinators will provide nectar, pollen and seeds to attract native butterflies, insects, birds and animals.
