Conditions of Use
Gardens are a great way to get your communities involved in outdoor fun and activities. Our school previously started a garden, all of the grades have gotten really involved. The layout of the garden was a contest to see who had the best idea for a map to scale. Many of the seeds were donated by students or teachers. Now in science our class we are testing pH of the soil to make sure the fruits and veggies will be able to grow. Our school has really come together through the garden, I encourage other families and school to create a garden getting friends and family involved.
Our school has been trying to go green and succeeding in some ways. A group of people from the zero waste now business which composts and demonstrates to children and even adults the effectiveness of composting and how it helps everyone. When they came in we went through bags of trash and when we started there was 87.5lbs of trash. After we sorted it there was 22lbs of trash, 51lbs of compost and 9lbs of recyclables. So if we all sorted trash like that you could get a large amount of great fertilizers and reduce the amount in landfills. This shows that doing a small thing goes a long way.
