The Garden Club’s Native Species Campaign

  • Location
    Los Angeles, California

The Problem

Our wish for this project is to educate Garden Club members about native plant species and to incorporate more native plants into our school garden so that students can see the plants' role in larger ecosystems.

Our Plan

We will have lessons about native species and try to locate any native plants that might already be found in the garden. We will investigate which native plants might grow best in our garden and why. We will purchase native plant seedlings and care for them in the garden until they grow and mature. We will study the role each native plant plays in the garden ecosystem and then make comparisons with the role of a native plant found in another natural environment (like a forest). Finally, we will see how our native plants contribute to the success of edible crops.
