Our project will grow flowers, crops, and provide students with opportunities to design and develop new ideas. The students' designs and ideas are all discussed and implemented through their special classes such as tech ed, art, PE, Family Consumer Science, and Library Science.

"Basicly Blackberies" is the first phase of establishing our school's Edible Schoolyard. As we secure funding, we are going to incorporate as many edible plants and fruit/nut trees as possible. This project will transforming the sterile academic landscape into a vibrant organic food oasis.

Our project will teach youth about agriculture, local plants, and help them develop gardening skills. It will produce food and flowers for the participants and their family. We will plant and maintain a community garden that participants and community members can contribute resources and volunteer hours. The youth and family members will take turns throughout the planting season to tend to and maintain the gardens.

We want to prepare our school's garden beds for spring planting and prune overgrowth in our butterfly garden. We also need to mulch around our trees and plant 4 new trees on campus. We will hold a garden work day on March 25 from 9-12.

Our "Help Our Garden" project consists of beautifying our school garden by painting our wooden garden crates and making a welcoming banner to place at the entrance of the garden with the hope of attracting more visitors so they can take advantage of the fruits and vegetables that we grow there. We also help to sustain our garden by buying more seeds and gardening supplies.

Our project will fund the purchase of various vegetable and fruit plants and trees. We will also be able to purchase soil and other materials to fund our School Garden.

Students will begin planting indoors as part of the after school program. They will research what plants they want to grow and how much space they will need. They will also be learning about composting and what to collect. The Recycle Team will be collecting items to make bird feeders and other recycle sculptures that can be displayed in the courtyard. In the Spring the gardening program will begin and students will learn about their garden from "food to table". They will maintain the garden and keep journals to measure all aspects of garden .

We have spent the last month researching greenhouses and native gardens. We identified plants we'd like to use, and created 3D model of our planned greenhouse. We created a pamphlet that incorporated all of the information we gathered. Then, we scheduled a meeting with our principal for January 3rd. We will discuss with him the feasibility of our ideas and gain his input on how we may best carry out our project.

As a class we will be making measurements of the land area and brainstorming ways to beatify the area. We know we want to add plants, but we also know that we need to control for runoff and possibly rebuild the walls holding up the levels of the land which are there to prevent ground erosion. We hope to work with the the parks department to have a trash can put in nearby or in the park to cut down on pollution left by people walking through the neighborhood.

The students will map out the school's organic garden footprint and the resources needed. The students will research and identify native flora, fauna and grass species, as well as the climate in deciding which plants to grow throughout the year and it will be organically maintained and naturally sustainable. Our drought will create awareness and the need to provide solutions for water conservation. This project will empower students to share and present the dangers of using toxic pesticides, especially for purely cosmetic reasons to the local HOAs in their community. They will also present the benefits of organic gardening and non-toxic solutions to the board in hopes that they will switch to organic landscaping. This organic school garden will help their problem solving skills, presenting skills and hopefully their gardening skills.
