A campus garden
As part of our Climate Change Action project, my GCC club decided to plant a garden on our high school campus. As you can see in the pictures, there was a perfect spot on campus for it..... a barren dirt area that nobody used and desperately needed to be beautified. We only used drought resistant plants and grasses, which will help the garden survive in case the GCC club dies in future years and the garden isn't tended to.
It was A LOT of work. But our club didn't even do the hardest part of it. Graham, a Boy Scout at our school heard of our garden plans, and wanted to adopt it as his Eagle Scout Project. In order to do that, though, he had to completely take over... So I let him. The garden probably will last a lot longer and looks a lot better since he took charge.
*******TIP: If you ever want to do a huge project for GCC, find a Boy Scout to take over. In order to become Eagle Scouts, it is required that they do a very good job on their project. The whole troop helps out with the manual labor as well.
Now there is a very beautiful garden on campus that helps fight the effects of climate change by providing oxygen, absorbing carbon dioxide, and it does not require as much water as a usual garden. The ladies that are taking over the GCC club next year when I'm at college even have a new location for their lunchtime meetings!
Did anyone else have a similar project for Climate Change Day?
