The Problem

Our GO GREEN students wish to add to our native and drought-resistant learning gardens. We need more plants - including succulents and butterfly-attracting varieties. In addition, we will have to purchase seeds, soil and groundcover to start seedlings within the classroom, which will later be planted in our gardens. It is our wish to attract Monarchs during their migration patterns.

Our Plan

We will be adding to the current native & drought-resistant planters. Having previously converted the gardens from an exclusive space, these gardens have become a center for learning where classes of all curricula come to read, explore, get resources, and even examine as scientists. Students are already asking questions about the varieties we planted, and we've led by example of how to conserve water during the California drought! Since the gardens are looking a little bit bare, we realize that we need add to the existing planters. In keeping with the curriculum, we want to get plantable materials for Project-Based Learning opportunities. Thank you for supporting us in this mission!
