Request from: Nicole Jellison – Twin Branch Elementary School
Through a reading/science unit, my class has been learning about conservation of resources and urban gardening. I noticed right away a passion in my students for this topic. As we have been reading, specifically about urban gardening, my students have continually expressed an interest in our classroom creating our own garden. I would like to buy materials to have a container garden that my students can help plant and maintain. Doing so would benefit them in a variety of ways. Not only would this be a leadership project directly relating to the goals of our Leader in Me program, but students would have to research and track the specific care and management of each plant. We will need containers, soil, trellises, seeds, gloves, small shovels, and watering cans. I have done research to price this out and we will easily spend the money I am requesting. We appreciate your consideration! I know my students are extremely excited at the idea of this project.
