We will grow organic food for student families and those in need. The process will go through an entire growing season to instill the processes necessary to growing healthy organic food in a community garden. We will appoint team leaders that will have specific responsiblities as well as individual responsiblities given to students for proper plant management. A Garden Manager will provide weekly guidance and lessons that incorporate soil sampling, proper watering regimens as well as pest management that will be put into ACTION to instill confidence in our children through growing food, reconnection to the soil and a broader understanding of nature.

With ten percent of our student population classified as homeless, this is a project close to our hearts. Our students will research and collaborate with community stakeholders to gather food for Food Pantry. The students will visit the pantry to take a tour and learn more about the organization. Students will create a presentation to raise awareness and support. This will be shared with the organization to give information about ----- Pantry and how to provide support for our homeless population. The food will be collected , organized , and delivered to the pantry - See more at: http://rootsandshoots.org/project/project-pantry#sthash.9Sin4Yz4.dpuf

We are creating a "Pop Up" Garden. All teachers will have access to grow kits with engaging, exploratory activities. They will create satellite gardens all over our campus through the use of grow bags. Once we reach harvest then our community non-profit partner, Cooking With Gabby, will come in and cook the harvest with each grade level as a harvest meal. A group of students will train to be "master" gardeners after school and will support teachers using their grow kits.

We will trace our water sources in our area including going on a field trip as described: We could follow the water from Windsor Lake to the pumps at Diamond Valley Ballfields. The water leaves the lake and travels thru a set of meters then travels over catch grates and down to Chimney Park. There it is goes thru a diversion box where some of the water stays at and Eastman and the rest goes under a few houses and a few more diversion boxes where it stops at Diamond Pond where it can be pumped out to water the fields or returned to the ditch and back to the Poudre River. This will help our students to have a better understanding about the infrastruction of our water system. We will also have speakers that help them to better understand the current issue of building more storage for our water to keep it here in our area. They will also have the chance to be part of the Weld County Well Watch program that tests temperature, nitrates, disolved oxygen level, depth and pH. This knowledge will help them to decide how we want to inform our community on the effects of our water shortages. We ultimately want our students to have an overall awareness of our local water and their impact on their enviornment through their water usage and protecting our water. Through learning about the well, the water pump, and having access to the Poudre River, students will gain a better understanding and be able to share with our student body and the community the importance of water in our world.
