Please watch our film and share with your schools and public administrators about planting native plants for pollinators in school gardens and public places. Find out how on our page. Jane Goodall and Roots and Shoots are one of our partners. www.pollinatorsunderpressure.org

We will purchase beautiful flowers that attact butterflies and bees, at each child's home in a container. The children will take care of the flowers by nourishing them with water and plant food. Then they will wait for the butterflies and bees to appear!

We are going to improve two areas on either side of the steps that lead up to our school. We are going to consider the drainage issues and potential plants that can enhance these areas while being conscious of the environmental impact on the landscape.

We would like to work with our neighbor school to create a recycling program for plastic food containers at school, and also reduce waste by finding an alternative to the styrofoam trays being used to serve food.

My 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 classes learned that seed balls made gardening easy, fun, and accessible. They learned that seed balls grow endangered wildflowers needed by pollinators, protect seeds from wind, birds, squirrels, and other critters, and has easy dispersal for more uniform coverage. So, they hand-rolled approximately 1,000 seed balls and shared them with their families and friends by distributing the seed balls with planting directions (the “guerilla” method of tossing the seed balls while hiking was the most popular to write about!) to entire school to take home to plant in their gardens. Many of my 2018-2019 class got to take these seed balls home as second graders and came into my third grade class at the beginning of this year not only wanting to make more seed balls, but teach our school something about our garden through a mural. So, my 2018-2019 class’ plan of action is to not only make more seed balls to share with our school community, but also to work with our 5th grade classrooms who are planning to help create the mural as part of their legacy gift to the school when they promote in the spring.

Farm to Fair will provide hands on programming for youth from November 2018 through August 2019. We will begin with a 2 day Program: Fed by Farms - research based curriculum from Iowa State University to introduce youth across the county to gardening production and animal production. A Junior Master Gardeners club will then be established to meet monthly with trained Master Gardeners. Each 4H club in Jones County (13 total clubs) will be provided garden boxes and supplies to plant a club garden box on the Jones County Fairgrounds. Clubs will have the opportunity to then decide how to share the food harvested with local organizations. 4 workshops are planned to provide further hands on education, access to speakers from the industry. There will be a bus trip to Iowa State University for youth in the county - this trip will provide access to University experts, hands on learning, and inspiration for future careers and opportunities. The project will close during the 2019 County and State Fairs. At the Jones County fair gardens will be showcased to the public and a Farm to Fair picnic will be held for the public. During the picnic youth will showcase demonstrations, presentations, and displays about the areas covered through the year. In addition each club will participate in the Club Vegetable Platter challenge where they will showcase and be judged on their garden produce. The project will finish out with a trip to the Iowa State Fair where clubs and individuals will enter their vegetables for State Fair judging and participate in Horticulture related programming.

Still in planning...but talking about adding hives, educating people on bees, planting more orchards or fruit trees and flowers.

We will start by introducing 4th-6th grade students to sustainable options which can be used in lieu of plastic and styrofoam products. NOTE: Many of these students have gone through the Kids for Positive Change program and are familiar with skipping the straw, using reusable straws, bags and bottles. We also will work with a community restaurant owner who actively composts, and teach students about the benefits of composting. We'd like to set up a composting station at school and continue our school recycling program. We will have students research sustainable and compostable products, like utensils made from corn and cups made from wheat and provide them with materials to "build" their own compostable products. A main focus will be raising awareness about plastic bag pollution and promoting the use of reusable bags. Much like our Classroom-Community Action Assignment: "The Last Plastic Straw Ashtabula Campaign," we will have students launch a similar campaign about plastic bags. Students will present at Ashtabula City Council and Board of Education meeting about zero waste and how to move toward making Ashtabula Area City Schools a Zero Waste / Sustainable School System!
