How are you incorporating your environmental projects into your school's curriculum?: 
A community effort to beautify our school grounds, begun by a teacher, has blossomed into a cooperative effort as a K-State's Landscape project. Included in our plan, which has several phases, are: water catchment systems, utilization of xeriscaping and use of native grasses. The curriculum portion will include segments on nutrition, botany, nomenclature, composting, insect/animal attraction, bio-diversity, water preservation, etc. Our long range goal is to create pockets of beauty throughout our town when the school areas are completed and sustained.
Accomplishments: 
Recently established The Garden Project with members representing teachers, school board members, economic development leaders, school nurse, parent/photographer, newspaper staff writer, master gardener, business owners,etc. The Garden Project's initial funding came from donations made by the community towards a memorial for the infant daughter of the founding family.
