The Problem

Our school playground is exclusively dirt and gravel and there are not many farms in our area. We also live in a dry area with not many community gardens. The problem with want to address is providing some food and plants for our classmates to take home and plant at their houses by growing them in a greenhouse on our playground.

Our Plan

We plan to reuse plexiglass barriers from the pandemic that are sitting in storage to build a greenhouse that will go on our playground. Students and classes will be able to use the greenhouse to grow starters and seedlings that they can then plant in the school garden or take home.
