Our mission is to broaden the positive impact our outdoor garden classroom has had in our school's community. Students, parents and teachers began preparing the area for our Tropical Food Forest in the summer of 2014. The area is a small plot of land behind our school that is home to a variety to native vegetation as well as local birds and reptiles. We aspire to add tree varieties, shrubs and flowers that provide food and shelter for the bird population along with fruit trees for our community's consumption. We also already started building an used tires contention wall and an interpretative trail. Our school's community will be greatly benefited by the projects and provide opportunities for bird watching, botanical studies, soil related investigations, a natural laboratory for ecology studies(plus much more) and...food for our bellies! Hopefully we will become a sustainable school model and help other schools in our community create similar projects.
