The Problem

Our wish is to beautify the outside of our Room 2 first grade classroom and our neighboring second grade, Room1 ,We want to learn how to do it ourselves and be water wise while doing it!

Our Plan

Our project is to beautify the outside area of our classroom. We will learn how deep to plant natives that require very little water. We will redo an area that was a small rock garden that would create a quiet place to sit. We want an area to grow seedlings that is close to us and right outside our door is perfect. We will get first grade size tools to empower our class to do our own work. We need a new compost bucket in this area to collect our breakfast, snack and lunch waste so we can contribute to our vermicomposting in our big garden. We would like to put a layer of bark over the ground to limit water loss and keep weeds to a minimum.
