We have already begun mapping our the contours of our campus to find the path of water drainage. Our garden lies directly in the path of the creek that existed at the turn of the 20th century, so the next phase will be creating a series of swales in our garden to capture the water. We will also begin a series of smaller projects to alleviate flooding problems on campus with the use of rain barrels, curb cuts, and rain gardens. Next year, he hope to have the partnerships and funding in place to expand the daylighting of Arroyo Sacatella, create more permeable surfaces, and install a cistern to reduce our water consumption in drought stricken California.

My students will improve upon the garden space as it is right now. They are visiting the Conejo Valley Botanical Garden to take a tour of the native species growing there and to get advice from their expert gardeners. They will be researching what butterflies and plants are native to our local area and make a list of what could be possible to include in our garden. They will meet with the school district's gardener to find out the water restrictions and get advice on how to best use the water designated for this spot in the most appropriate way. Once this is done, they will be working with our school's parent-run EcoTeam to continue to transform this budding garden into a living, learning, native species garden.

A group of students will train to be "master" gardeners after school and will support teachers using their grow kits.
