We will conduct student and family surveys about their knowledge of food desserts and neighborhood disparities before and after our project. At the end of the year, students who chose to work on the garden will present their work and research findings/community maps in a capstone presentation to families and community members, who we will then survey again to see if their knowledge has increased.
Our hopes are to pick out a variety of different native plants that have certain "roles". We will be able to weave baskets, create paints, make teas, medicines, foods, and much more. Our main goal is to create a safe, calming space, while learning about the natural world.
I will sell my art at www.pigtailsart.com. I will then donate it to my special fundrasing page. http://team.janegoodall.org/site/TR/Events/General?px=1295382&pg=personal&fr_id=1050 I hope to have the money raised by my 11th birthday!

Planting season in Haiti begins in April. Haiti Plunge Inc. sends teams of high school and college youth to Haiti eight times annually. An American high school team will be in Haiti April 15 - 24, 2016.
