We want the students to learn the dangers of toxic pesticides especially to children while experiencing first hand the benefits to eating organic whole foods. The school's garden will engage students in hands-on applications for a memorable learning experience. The garden will be organically maintained and naturally sustainable. Students will be responsible to research and identify native flora, fauna and grass species, as well as the climate in deciding which plants to grow throughout the year.
The students will map out the school's organic garden footprint and the resources needed. The students will research and identify native flora, fauna and grass species, as well as the climate in deciding which plants to grow throughout the year and it will be organically maintained and naturally sustainable. Our drought will create awareness and the need to provide solutions for water conservation.
This project will empower students to share and present the dangers of using toxic pesticides, especially for purely cosmetic reasons to the local HOAs in their community. They will also present the benefits of organic gardening and non-toxic solutions to the board in hopes that they will switch to organic landscaping. This organic school garden will help their problem solving skills, presenting skills and hopefully their gardening skills.
