Mr. Pliler from Page AZ is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Growing Together

My students need irrigation for our school garden. Olla, we can use clay pots. We also need a soil test kit, books and a plants and plant processes poster.

My Students

The students that attend our rural school are of various backgrounds and beliefs and include about an 80% Native American population. One thing they have in common is an exuberance for the outdoors.

Given the amazing scenery in our backyards, it is impossible to not be drawn to the outdoors.

In order to take advantage of this interest, a science-centered curriculum in which agricultural knowledge is at the forefront seems not only logical but opportune. With the help of materials requested, our students will be provided an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.

My Project

Everything chosen for this project will contribute to our school's first-ever garden! We will be using some ancient watering techniques in the form of ollas and will be making these out of terracotta pots glued together. In order to supplement our curriculum, we selected a small set of books to add to our modest selection and a poster displaying the plant growth cycle. In addition, we are requesting a soil testing kit to study and ensure that the soil composition is appropriate for high yield growing.

This program is going to be chalk-full of learning experiences in all disciplines of education and life.

We anticipate an abundance of growth that will provide the school with an opportunity to give back to our community, team up with the high school's culinary program, and still be able to establish a sustainable program by selling produce in the local farmer's market.

This is going to be a-maize-ing.
