The Problem

Our hope is the beautify the location around the local community garden. We hope to clean up and make the ground a better environment for plants to live in. Depending on funding we are hoping to add flowering native plants to the area to beautify the landscape and make the garden more environmentally friendly to bees and butterflies which help to pollinate our vegetables which are being grown for the community and the local food pantry.

Our Plan

As a class we will be making measurements of the land area and brainstorming ways to beatify the area. We know we want to add plants, but we also know that we need to control for runoff and possibly rebuild the walls holding up the levels of the land which are there to prevent ground erosion. We hope to work with the the parks department to have a trash can put in nearby or in the park to cut down on pollution left by people walking through the neighborhood.
