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.
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.
