Second grade is researching and designing mini greenhouses to attempt to grow food year round. Our students are in the research phase now. We are planning to test different designs and materials to see which type of greenhouse provide the maximum results. The students will collect data to keep track of temperatures and humidity levels inside their greenhouses.

The Wish for our project is to add a feature to our downtown area that brings people in and livens up our community making it a better place for the people who live here and anyone who comes to visit.
My art service learning group at Poudre Community Academy partnered with Wildlands Restoration and Bohemian Foundation's GiveNext program to provide a creative outlet to people of all ages that promotes the arts and create a "Need for Seed Garden" in our school yard for us to build, design, grow and give. The purpose of the garden is to help supply Wildlands Restoration with our seeds from Colorado native drought resistance plants to help re-seed area lands destroyed by flooding and wild fires.
We will visit special education schools and nursing homes regularly, providing courses to children, having activities with children, spending time with elders and helping take care of them.
After we (the kids) grow the seeds our parents use to cook we can donate the fruits and veggies to local homeless shelters.
Our Gr. 4 project is three parts 1) working with a buddy class to provide information and structures to educate the community about our Aspen Forest habitat. 2) To build structures to encourage wildlife eg) songbirds back to the forest. 3) To complete a plant project from seedling to supper to educate our parents/community about the findings and discoveries we have had within the Aspen Forest Habitat & plant life that we have learned about while providing a fundraising supper to support future projects regarding our Outdoor Classroom.
We have already sectioned off a part of the school for the garden, there is a back area of the school that has a narrow yet very long space which to this date has been unused which is where we plan to build the garden. The length of the area is approximately 94 meters long and the width spans from 4-10 meters wide depending on where you are in the garden, with an area size measuring 5,544 feet. In this space we are going to put soil where we will grow a variety of types of plants, we will have a compost station, an aquaponics pond, and we will have an outdoor classroom area. We have an action plan of how we want to partition the space and how we will execute this. Classes will be brought in to learn about gardening while the O-life club will be the primary people maintaining the garden, although anyone who wants to help may do so for credit and/or volunteer hours.
We will start with the history of the monument and st. Isidoros' life. Then we will write down the damage done by people or time to the monument and we will contact the local community, as well as the authorities for information or help to bring the problem to light.
The very first step of this campaign will be to document various frog species around you. This is very simple. Just click the picture of the frog that you spot and upload it to our online Facebook group called ‘Frogs of Manipal’. Go to your facebook profile and type ‘Frogs of Manipal’. Join the group and share. Add species name (if known), time and location. It will be an added benefit to count the number of frogs seen. Don't forget to use the hashtag #NotJustFrogs and share it with your friends. You could also use the hashtag and upload it on your twitter and instagram profiles. Next time share this fun activity with your friends and get them to love frogs, if not love just get them to join the group.
