Glen Taylor's Garden Hummingbird Habitat

Our school garden classroom will enhance our students' knowledge of native Nevada plants and wildlife.


About this Project [+]

Our project is geared to be the completion of an entire outdoor garden classroom.  Our project will include the fencing, trees, overhang for shade, and additional garden beds.  This learning environment will include native Nevada trees and plants.  These plants will bring in hummingbirds to our garden for students to observe and learning their life cycle.  

 

Problem that we are solving

The challenge we face is ongoing financial support.  The garden needs to be secure.   A fence that will lock and protect all of the students work would be a great asset.  In addition the garden needs upkeep from professional farmers each week in order to sustain a healthy student friendly environment.  

How we solve the problem

This project would provide the funding for a weekly farmer and a team of experts to advise the school.  Then we would be able to implment student engagement and parent activities.  We could even fund an after school garden club.

Our impact

Our project is geared to be the completion of an entire outdoor garden classroom.  Our students at Glen Taylor Elementary School will benefit from hands on learning through our teachers and a specialized farmer.  Our project will include the fencing, trees, overhang for shade, and additional garden beds.  This learning environment will include native Nevada trees and plants.  These plants will bring in hummingbirds to our garden for students to observe and learning their life cycle.  Our garden will conserve water and demonstrate to students that they can grow and produce vegetables to eat.  Our outdoor classroom will be a positive healthy place for each and every student.
