Inspired by the student autonomy of Japanese schoolchildren, the invasive threat of global warming, the biological and chemical health benefits produced in people when they are outside doing manual labor, and the joy of having grown plants, vegetables, and flowers ourselves; we, as the Gardening Club, wish to foster a stronger Garcia Middle School community in which students and staff come together to take care of the school’s garden. This is an opportunity for students to engage in a project bigger than themselves—it’s long, the results may not happen during a student’s school year, but the sum of their efforts will be recorded in history and will bring excitement and fruit for future generations.
Participating in Gardening Club offers leadership skills, volunteer hours, and perhaps extra credit for Science and History classes.
