Native Plant Garden

The Problem

The goal of our club's starting project is to create green areas/gardens utilizing natives plants that will aid in minimizing water usage while providing beautification to our campus.

Our Plan

Through the leadership of our member students and through funding, we will purchase gardening tools, mulch and plant seeds to prepare the soil, arrange the planting beds and water our gardens. In addition, students will conduct school-wide workshops to develop consciousness and awareness of water usage, eco-friendly flora and education on native plants of our state. Eventual and follow-up projects that build upon the native-plant garden will involve tree planting with the aim of providing shade areas throughout school and that will cool our concrete-covered campus while aiding in harvesting the little precipitation we get.
