Project Description
(200 students / 8 Teachers)

From Bare to Beautiful: Constructing Our School Garden
Design and construct an outdoor learning area on barren land between the school building and playground area where students will learn about and care for native plants and animals. A rain garden and rain barrel system will capture runoff, native plants will be used to illustrate conservation of resources, vegetable and fruit gardens will encourage healthy eating, and a rock garden will highlight the geology of the area.
