The Problem

Our wish is that we can plant, grow, and cultivate plants, flowers, herbs, and vegetables in our classrooms and garden beds. We hope our students can learn about life cycles, sustainability, and the environment.

Our Plan

Our project will add garden space to our setting. The children will plant and maintain organic gardens. We will integrate the project into our curriculum and make connections with our life cycle unit, community unit, 4 seasons unit, and STEAM curriculum. We hope to plant butterfly plants to attract monarchs as well as veggies and herbs that will grow in our climate. We would also like to investigate the possibility of a rain barrel for watering. Our class is a 2 year program and we loop with our students. We are utilizing the community mapping project that we created last year. This year our project involves all 3 classes in the preschool program.
