The Ashé Indie Festival will merge music, art and Earth in a two-day community festival. Taking place on Earth Day weekend, this celebration will feature over 50 live indie artists, art installations, performances, healthy food, and sustainability demonstrations along with the live planting of a garden. Our partners, including the FAMU Cooperative Extension, FAMU Student Community Garden and iGrow, will lead the planting initiative along with volunteers to maximize the collaboration of this community garden in the South side! A portion of the funds raised at this event and as well as the crops, once they have matured, will go to benefit non profit community gardens and families in underrepresented areas of Tallahassee!

We would like to purchase grow lights, as well as other garden necessities by early April for our indoor garden. The children will plant seedlings indoors under the grow lights and begin worm composting for Earth Day. As seedlings progress, the children will transplant the plants and flowers in late May and continue to grow the plants through to harvest in August and the fall months. With each harvest we will share some our bounty with a community food bank.

The project is starting a campus garden club to help build and maintain sustainable and organic courtyard gardens on campus. We hope to get as much of the school participating as possible. We will grow food and herbs for the cafeteria and provide opportunities for people of all ages and all creeds to get their hands dirty and learn about where their food comes from and why it's important. We hope to provide educational opportunities for the daycare center planting transplants and building bird and bug houses. Our club plans to plant bee and butterfly friendly flowers as well as hatch some butterflies to release into the gardens. We also hope to give students an opportunity to create art for the spaces out of 100% recycled items. We are also trying to use as little input as possible by building some of the raised beds out of reclaimed and recycled materials. We are currently in the process of planning the designs and finding donors to our cause. We already have one club, a few committees, and a compost donor all working on the project now and as far as I know everyone is on board and fairly excited.

We hope to create several raised beds for students to plant and care for a variety of fruits and vegetables.

We want to pitch in anyway we can. The garden beds must be prepared for the colder season, and there is basic upkeep around the garden that we can do. We are going to the garden ready to get dirty!

We will build our own solar powered Photon based weather station that collects wind, rain, soil temperature, soil moisture, atmospheric pressure, temperature, and humidity data. All data is uploaded via WiFi and accesible in the classroom. Students and teacher will use these tools to monitor key information about our garden, collect and analyze data, or design experiments to learn about garden biology.

As a classroom project will will first clean up the trash and remove the weeds. We will rejuvenate the soil with potting soil and manure. We will plant tomatoes, lettuce, beans, peppers and other vegetables purchased trough a R&S mini-grant. The school and visiting members of the community will a beautiful garden with fresh organic food growing in place that was turning into a dump site.

We will build the raised bed and prep the garden with compost materials, soil and manure. The girls and children in Roots and Shoots will plant seedlings for the gardens that they will care for in their own homes. We will dissect seeds and make observations under a dissecting scope. They will journal the various stages of the seed as it grows into an edible plant. Once the plants are mature enough we will add them to the garden where the children can continue to make observations and journal. Once the plants become well established we will offer lessons on making herbal teas and cooking with herbs and vegetables from the garden.
