Students will plant and take care of the school garden. They will problem solve as the plants grow and learn about their needs. They will advertise and sell their produce for the purpose of raising money for a local charity in a final "Little Chief Marketplace" at the end of the school year.

Our project will bring food production to our campus, and be a wonderful addition to the freight farm vertical hydroponic farm we will be running near it. It will bridge the school to community gap by bringing the community onto campus. Our project has the added bonus of bringing some interest and landscape to a drab Colorado school landscape! We intend to surround the garden with native flowering plants to bring pollinators, and bird houses to attract bluebirds.

We will make, harvest, and continue to keep a school garden through working with local primary school students. There will be ongoing garden up-keep and re-plantings happening throughout the year.

To complete this project, we applied for (and received!) two small grants to help with purchasing supplies. We researched and selected the most appropriate structure for our budget. We also met with our cafeteria service in regards to the farm-to-table portion of the project. And, of course, we had a community build date when we raised the structure!

Our project at Noble Middle School is to create a healthy vegetable and herb garden. In hope of feeding the hungry in our community and creating a beautiful space at our school, we have planted rosemary, beebalm, and tomatoes. We will continue to water our plants and take care of them through a schedule we have assembled that includes all of our class members.

The Tom McCall Roots&Shoots group has planned to take 3 field trips to Nana Cardoon Urban Farm and Learning Center. Our primary objective would be to explore and have “hands on” experience with natural food systems. Nana Cardoon offers a rich environment for developing understanding of plant growth, harvest, processing, preservation, and preparation. A secondary objective would be developing deeper connections to our community and its assets. Expanding our understanding of Forest Grove will help us develop meaningful community projects.

With this Roots and Shoots grant, we will be able to provide critical care to 6 Watsonville area public schools. These school orchards serve a combined 5,000 students in grades K-12. With proper seasonal care, the fruit trees in these orchards will bear fruit for up to 100 years. This grant will go towards funding seasonal care visits, where experienced staff members will prune, fertilize, check the irrigation system, and make sure these school orchards are healthy so that they are able to produce the maximum amount of fruit possible! During these care visits we will also engage students from each school in environmental leadership curriculum, helping to create the next generation of youth leaders and environmental stewards.

We will conduct this project by having student complete the Roots & Shoots program and plant the garden in the Pikesville Middle school yard.

We will grow our own food, sell it, and learn about healthy eating. Students will keep the books, order, figure out prices, run a cash register & produce scale. They will learn how to be sustainable.
