We want to expand the existing garden. The current garden gives students and staff a chance to get out into nature and watch the fruits of their hard work grow. This gives students a real sense of achievement, to be able to physically produce something as a result of hard work.
Action Plan: we would like to construct more raised beds and plant more fruit and veg for the students to harvest themselves. These will include:
4-pumpkins to carve next Halloween
5-Construct and install a herb garden for our home economics classes to use
6-Sow, grow and harvest lettuce and radish next summer before summer break.
7-Propagate shrubs and plants from existing plants in the school garden to align with the Biology and Ag Science course.
8-Sow and grow wildflowers to attract pollinators.
9-install bird feeders with seeds and nuts to support wildlife during the winter months.
