Understand that the connections that we make with nature affect all things living and nonliving around us. Study Plant Life in our school yard and link the indoor garden with our Outdoor Classroom space. Understand the connection between plant life in our forest and the animals that the forest services, including us. Identify the native and invasive plants and trees. Study the therapeutic uses of our gardens. Understand the forest in terms of foraging and begin to learn about therapeutic gardening and the indigenous plants in the area. Begin to affect changes that are beneficial to people, animals and plants. Learn to create action and give back to others. .

At this time, we have already taken 2 of the 3 trips to Nana Cardoon. Each trip is planned a month apart of each other (March, April, May), so we are looking at how nature changes with the seasons. In anticipation of this, we have calculated the "photoperiod" (hours/min of light) changes at each weekly meeting. Between the first two visits we gained 2.5 hours of light! We have made various flat breads (Kurdish, Naan) from grain grown at the farm, cooking them in a "cobb" oven. We have ground wheat using a bicycle powered mill. Making our own hummus was great! We have explored changes in the garden, the role of pollinators, as well as planted potatoes. Our visits have ended with a group meal, enjoying our prepared foods. The results have been tasty. We are looking forward to our final visit in May.

Our project will continue to clean up the area we have secured for the garden. Then, we will plant and maintain crops. We will design informative placards to describe the plants and their uses. We will open our area to the public with free raised bed rental to low income families. Also, the food produced will be used by our school's culinary program. We have already secured land, built raised beds, and began planting. However, we are trying to raise funds to purchase tools, plants, and help with a fence and gate to help maintain and protect our garden.

This project will help my school community take action by planting and harvesting. It will get students to compost, learn about nature and our human impact on the environment. I have already reached out to many organizations and received a donation from a local lumber yard to donate garden beds. Myself along with my students and garden committee, have created a garden layout. We have shared our vision with the rest of our school community and our currently transforming our small lawn space into more of a community garden. We would like to build a green house so we can plant all year long. We would like to share our harvest with our local temporary housing shelter. Our project will impact more than 600 people.

We will plant several blueberry bushes and a bunch of strawberry plants. We will research the best plants to purchase and best place to plant them, and then the best way to take care of them, and they will be a living environmental and plant-growth classroom for the toddlers through eighth graders at our school, and also provide healthy, nutritious and tasty food for the students (over 115 of them, infants through eighth graders) at our school when in season.

Our city does not have many gardens, so we plan to help the community plant gardens starting with our high school: Bell Gardens High School, in the city of Bell Gardens, California. Students will plant a garden in school and educate and help the community plant gardens in their own homes.

We will collect plant, soil, and material donations for the construction of our project. The community will be helping by planting, growing the seeds, and maintaining the garden during the summer months. All fruit, herbs, and vegetables will be sold and given to local citizens. All proceeds will go towards other community garden beds, compost bins, and no money will be collected for profit.
