Our Monarch Waystation will enhance the beauty of our school garden, attract more pollinators, and offer monarch butterflies a safe habitat in which to thrive. In addition, students will teach others in the community about the importance of helping the monarch butterfly by creating signage for the garden, handing out milkweed seed balls, and by hosting a monarch celebration.

We will be adding to the current native & drought-resistant planters. Having previously converted the gardens from an exclusive space, these gardens have become a center for learning where classes of all curricula come to read, explore, get resources, and even examine as scientists. Students are already asking questions about the varieties we planted, and we've led by example of how to conserve water during the California drought! Since the gardens are looking a little bit bare, we realize that we need add to the existing planters. In keeping with the curriculum, we want to get plantable materials for Project-Based Learning opportunities. Thank you for supporting us in this mission!

Our Roots & Shoots campaign will address unused space on our campus that could be used for plants in an area that is currently deficient of green spaces. It will also address the concern of lacking environmental stewardship among our students because of their lack of access to green spaces and knowledge about the environment. Our campaign will establish a Eco Club that will help to educate the student body as well as enhance school grounds by up-keeping 6 raised beds that are currently vacant.

Together we will research plants that are habitats and/or food for local species. We will use these plants to create our interactive wildlife habitat. We will have observation stations with various supplies and materials for students to be able to conduct their research and collect data. For example, magnifying glasses, laminated insect and plant guides. Also, a fun log circle for observation and discussions.

Our project is a school garden. We want to plant California native plants that are drought tolerant, as well as some edible plants and vegetables. We want to use our project to engage students in our science, career technology, and culinary arts programs, by providing a clean and safe place for outdoor classrooms and recreational space.

Our garden projects were started last year and have been making strides this academic year. Our garden bed for the cafeteria project has been delivered just this week. One of our balcony gardens is flourishing and we are in the works of fundraising and collecting donations of reusable containers and supplies for the remainder of our gardens, including a butterfly garden. A sub-committee of the MET's Environmental Committee to has been set up to over see the project.

There is a local, Brooklyn-based nursery/gardening store (Natty Garden). I have been there before and know that they have what we need in stock. We would take a field trip there, return to school, and have club members stock designated classrooms with the new greenery.
