Currently, we have a Sensory Garden outside of our classroom. This garden was built in 2014 by our special needs students. Since then, it has become over grown and not maintained. With this grant, we will be able to buy the supplies to revamp our sensory garden. The garden will need plants that you can see, touch, taste, and smell. We will also need new wind chimes for the hearing station.

We hope our project will spark the conversation on healthy eating. Fresh organic food is very hard to come by in most Los Angeles communities. This garden space will act as an inspiration peace as well as a full learning experience for all participants. We will engage with family and community members in planting all trees during the Halloween season.

Our students will build planters on our school. They will germinate seeds, transplant to a smaller planter, and then plant in our garden. The students will learn how to care for their plants. They will be responsible for creating another garden somewhere else in the community after they learn now to care for the garden.

We will create a local and sustainable food system where families are able to access more fresh produce to incorporate in meals at home and create new learning opportunities for students at school! We'll be working with parents, students, local businesses, non-profit groups, members of the Garden Committee team, and district personal to get our mission accomplished! We will also be creating a Colorado native plants garden therefore providing bees and butterflies a home and place to thrive.

Working with students and parents we have the following goals: 1. Revamp monarch garden. It needs general maintenance as well as repairs after recent construction. 2. Expand our three edible garden beds. 3. Establish, rehabilitate, and maintain our native Texas landscape. 4. Add informational and plant id signs to bed areas.

The first step is to clear out the overgrown areas, and get the bamboo under control. We will slowly but surely renovate each of the three small gardens to their full potential.

First, we will plant a tree outside of our classroom. Next, we plan to incorporate an aquaponic growing system within our classroom to grow vegetables, which will incorporate our class fish tank and show how building a connection between plants and animals can be an amazing thing, just as in the wild.

We have a smaller student population at our alternative school in a modified building. A Youth-Build project of creating a patio is in the works. We would like to build some plant growing stations in and around our patio for beautification of the area as well as fresh herbs and other vegetables for our own consumption. The coordinator for the food shelf is coming in two week to consult with us, after which we plan on helping them establish some food growing plots before we start our own.

We would fundraise for supplies by selling fruit pastries in school made of organic fruit. We will spread awareness by making a website, passing out pamphlets that we design and a video that we create that will be shown during our Community Activism Fair on campus.

We wish for our garden area to be cleaned up and well maintained. Also, we want our kids to understand where their food comes from and how to make healthy food choices!
