Our project will bring people of all ages together for a common goal in an effort to create a true community. The success of our garden, every year, and of the continuation of the program, depends on support, relationships, communication, compassion -- extremely useful skills in the real world. This garden project will give students unique opportunities for growth, creativity and learning. The opportunity to be in an outdoor classroom with a new environment to study applied math, science and art lessons (without really even knowing it)! This project will connect children to the earth, fostering an understand of the cycle of life, our place in it, the interconnectivity of people and the power of teamwork as well as the value of precious resources -- as basic as water and sunlight. Through support from the community, we will fully develop our native Californian garden to attract the beloved monarch butterfly with new plantings. Our second goal is to establish worm bins, composting and rain barrels.

Alverno students will build a mini aquaponics system for demonstrating aquaponics at outreach events.
United States
Alverno students are building 2 x 1000-liter aquaponics systems. The project impacts students by engaging them in meaningful scientific practices, and the local and global community will benefit through education and outreach. Local outreach will take the form of educational presentations to local schools, as well as an informational website. In addition to an invaluable learning experience for the students in an important emerging farming technology to address the food global crisis, the knowledge acquired will enable the students to provide technical support and outreach to local and global communities.

We will put in some plumbing on the pipes that leave the sand filter. This new plumbing is a device that will re-route the water into two hoses. The hoses will then run along the fence until they reach our two gardens that have trees

Our project is to grow vegetables in an aquaponics system. Goldfish will also grow to help produce the proper amounts of nitrogen to cycle through the system and help sustain the growth of our plants. We will complete water testing for nutrients and pH levels to make sure our plants and fish are happy and healthy.
