Getting Down to the Wire

I am felling happy, excited, and ready to learn from this Garden VENTURA project. I Am happy that we will be changing an old trailer that no one even used into something that can change the world and everyone will use. This project is very sustainable because we will be eating fruits and vegetables that we make from our garden, this will also help us eat better. We would be recycling and also composting. It feels awesome to have something different like a garden at our school. That will make us better at helping our environment and making our school a better place. It will make our planet more interesting and Eco friendly. Our school is unique in many ways, and now that we can make our garden and trailer for a place where teachers can chill out. It makes our school more unique and better.
There are a few things left to do for our Garden VENTURA project. We still have to organize our wiki project & make it good to present to the 10th graders engineering students. We also have to finish our sketch up of the trailer & what we plan the garden around it to look like. We also have to plan out our composting plan for our garden. But together I know we will get this done.
We have learned so much from this project. We’ve learned about composting, and gardening, learning which bugs are good and which ones are bad, how to fix the pH in the soil to fit your plants’ needs, and how to have sustainability in our garden, and reliable cost on things to put in our garden. We learned that a good way to grow vegetables is to stack the plant beds so that the vegetables get even sunlight. This project will hopefully help not only us, but all the world live a more sustainable life.
