Who will Benefit?
Galt students and the Galt community
How will the money be used?
Our school just completed 4 amazing pollinator gardens: butterfly, bee, hummingbird, rock/succulent. This was started this year as a school wide Service Learning Project to create an awareness of the rapid decline in the bee population and to stimulate pollination. Units of study have been designed for each section. Now we would like to extend the gardens on the outer edges of our quad and create an "outdoor classroom." We would like to plant more of our Native Californian pollinator plants and add outdoor tables, benches and umbrellas for outdoor learning. We would also like to build a gazebo in the center of our quad and partner with SMUD to install solar panels that will provide our gardens with solar fountains and running water. The students and parents have been passionate about this project and would like to be able to complete our vision. We would carry out this plan in mid August when we return to school. We are hoping all schools will visit our gardens and outdoor classrooms.
