By growing our own food we can reduce our carbon footprint, a major cause of climate change, by reducing the amount of transportation (using less oil and producing fewer emissions) that it takes to get food onto our plate.
Allows us to conduct hands-on investigations and explore questions such as: How do plants grow? What do they need to stay healthy? How does pollination work, and who are the pollinators? What kind of insects are needed (or not) for a healthy garden? What is the difference between fruits and vegetables and where do they come from?
Allows us to grow healthy food for the school lunches or hungry people in the area.
Rebuild the old and unused school garden.
Plant different types of flowers, vegetables or fruits
Observe and document the growth of different plants and the development of the whole garden
At the end of the semester, analyze: What plants have grown most successfully? What do plants need to prosper? What does have to be improved or changed?
2. Planting trees
Planting trees helps mitigate climate changes because trees sequester carbon, a major cause of climate change.
Attempt to grow different types of trees from the seeds and observe and document their growth
Plant one tree per each student either around the school or at student home
Join the United Nations' Billion Tree Campaign and report the results

These trees grow in Poland. We have written their names in POLISH and in ENGLISH. Do you know these trees? The ones that we have in our school garden are marked with the red spot.
Look! These oak trees in our school garden that you can see in the photo below were planted here 40 years ago!

The weather today was a little bit better, we hope that the sun will soon melt the snow in our garden and we will be able to plant our daffodils next week. On the horizon you can see frosty peaks of Beskidy Mountains in the rays of sun. This is a view from one of our classrooms.

This is a part of our garden that is behind the school building. We took a photo of it, we used Photo Shop to change it into PNG. This way we could create our designs in Tux Paint.
Students would like to add some colour to our school garden. These are only some of our designs. We will publish more of them soon.
