The Problem

We hope to incorporate more sustainable practices into the landscaping and gardening at Logan High School. We would like to create a small greenhouse to be used as an educational tool for students of every grade. Providing students with the opportunity to create and maintain a functional greenhouse can build time-management, leadership, and collaboration skills, while fostering a connection to nature. Although, if a greenhouse is beyond our school's financial means, we would like to create a native garden on the school grounds. This may include plants such as the Utah Honeysuckle, which provides berries for birds, and the Wild Geranium, which produces beautiful flowers with a long blooming season. A native garden would reduce water and pesticide use, while providing food and cover for wildlife.

Our Plan

We have spent the last month researching greenhouses and native gardens. We identified plants we'd like to use, and created 3D model of our planned greenhouse. We created a pamphlet that incorporated all of the information we gathered. Then, we scheduled a meeting with our principal for January 3rd. We will discuss with him the feasibility of our ideas and gain his input on how we may best carry out our project.
