Here is how the project went:
We have decided on the best location to plant our trees and have decided on the tree species, but due to the corona virus, schools have been closed and we are unable to organize volunteers. We are back on site and are prepping our planting location. We will plant our trees at the start of the rainy season in Los Angeles.
Through this project I/we learned:
We are learning about what trees will grow best in our region and how to amend the soil to help them grow. I am also learning how to work with school site staff to make sure we are all on the same page about our project going forward.
What I/we might change:
We might expand it and try to work more with school site planning committees.
My/our favorite part of this project was:
Deciding which trees to plant. But I'm sure when we plant the trees, that will be the best part.
Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:
Make sure you think about how big the trees will grow to be when they are mature and think about what kind of shade they will create, because this will affect your garden space.
