The Problem

My goal is to bring new planting supplies to our school courtyard garden, Students will be able to harvest existing plants, fruits, vegetables and [re[are them for our community farmers market. Once planting has been harvested; students will reseed, plant, fertilize and weed our garden with new plants for the upcoming growing season.

Our Plan

Activities will begin once teachers return to school the end of July. Students will come to school and help with the harvesting prior to the beginning of the school year in mid August. Students will prepare the soil for weeding, hoeing and replanting. Once school starts students and teachers sign up of class graden time to go out to help work in the garden. When our families come to school, community members and school district employees come to our school they will be taken on a garden tour by the student and class who are in charge of the garden at the time of the visit. This project will enable all of our students and teachers to have a vested interest in the outcome of our garden, the produce, protecting its beauty and securing students will have access to eat the produce from our garden.
