Classtopians have captured a new place to start a beautiful garden. The new garden that we are trying to fix up is behind the auditorium.
We saw that everyday a lot of students and staff members would walk by and see an ugly concrete box with soil and some old Yucca plants.
Our class acted quickly, and started to clean up. The trees had a ton of dead leaves on them. We started plucking off the dead leaves. The leaves that we pulled off were thrown on the ground, so some students had to sweep.
There was a big Eucalyptus tree growing in the garden planter and the roots were already breaking the concrete. If we allowed it to stay there, the entire thing would have collapsed. Our teacher asked “Mr. Big Man”, one of the coordinators, who helps us to heavy lifting and difficult garden jobs to take out the tree. He brought an axe and chopped down the Eucalyptus tree. We hope by removing the tree we can save the box and be able to create our new garden area.
I am proud of this new garden space. We were told this morning that we have been given some money to buy plants to add to the area. We also got an anonymous donation to get our tools to begin work.
This new garden will welcome visitors and students to the auditorium.
Below is a picture of the area before we will put the new plants.
