The Problem

To continue to increase the knowledge of our students about a nature and their natural school spaces by identifying the plants trees and animals.

Our Plan

Understand that the connections that we make with nature affect all things living and nonliving around us. Study Plant Life in our school yard and link the indoor garden with our Outdoor Classroom space. Understand the connection between plant life in our forest and the animals that the forest services, including us. Identify the native and invasive plants and trees. Study the therapeutic uses of our gardens. Understand the forest in terms of foraging and begin to learn about therapeutic gardening and the indigenous plants in the area. Begin to affect changes that are beneficial to people, animals and plants. Learn to create action and give back to others. .
