Transcript of Boomer garden

Where the roots are.
A Boomer Garden for our school to show that the Toledo Boomers are doing something! Also we would be promoting school spirit and create healthy eating habits!
Possible Garden spots
Lower field- hard ground.
Outside cafeteria- picnic area.
Bus loading zone- down sloping hill.
Center of the school- not to fire code
Building ideas
Total cost for installing a smallish garden: About 500 dollars for a garden with 500 square ft. or less.
Total cost for terracing a hill: Depends on the number of “steps” we install, but over all about 1,750 dollars for the small garden we plan to install. Note: This information was found on network and the price estimate was based on the cost of concrete per square foot in 2013, the price could have changed by now.

Watering system- 50 gallon rain water collector connected to manual sprinkling system.
Planter boxes- depending on plant.
Green house- to grow through winter.
Fence- to keep animals out.

Lahonyay would like to build these, he already has a lot of crazy ideas in his head for the rain collector and green house.

Communal Effect
School Impact
Tie into classes
Super group
The cherry on top, the reasons why
Places LUX Soil moisture
Across bus zone 22,500 35.1%
Lower field 24,000 29%
Outside cafeteria 24,100 27.5%
Center of school No data No data

LUX- The measurement of light hitting the Earth.

According to the data the best area for the garden would be across the bus loading zone.

Small hydro, and the garden group had an idea that we could combine and help each other out. Our groups can combine and make one super group. We would work together by collecting the rain water, and adding small turbines into the collection system. The water would be used to water the garden and the small hydro group would still be able to generate electricity.
Having the garden will show that the school is interested in helping our community and also we could make small profit by selling some of the produce at the farmers market. Also we could we could donate some of the produce to a local soup kitchen.
Many schools around the United States have school gardens. Some schools have noticed many changes in the students. Some have noticed better behavior, and less bullying. These schools say that working together as a group has brought the school closer together.
Another impact is the lunches. The schools food would be healthier, and the school wouldn't have to pay so much for food.
The garden can be put into many different classes
Home ec.
Community service.
Senior project.
Earth Science.
The reason why we are interested in making a school garden is adding good atmosphere and changing not only the school but our community, we want to impact Toledo as a whole not just our school. Having a garden would also let the students feel pride and owner ship and let them have a sense of responsibility.
Approximate cost for installing plants ( radishes, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, spinach, peas,green beans, carrots): 3 dollars per pound for radishes, 1 dollar per tomato plant, $3.50 for 550 seeds for lettuce, Onion seeds vary from $2.95 to $79.99 ( depending on what amount of seeds we get), $6.95 for 300 seeds for spinach, 100 pea seeds for $.50, 28 seeds of green beans for $2.79, and 400 seeds of carrots for $2.58.
