Grow the Grove
The goal of the “Grow the Grove” project will be to clean-up and beautify Pine Grove Elementary School. There are abandoned gardens, fish farm equipment that needs to be removed, overgrown weeds from previous strawberry gardens and overall clean-up that needs to be done. Once the clean-up has been completed, there will be installation of paver blocks, benches, planting of Plumbago in the areas that students gather, creation of new sustainable gardens outside of each homeroom classroom, and planting of drought tolerant trees throughout the campus.
The objective of this project is to include staff, students, and community members in a school-wide clean-up that is so desperately needed. There are many areas on the school grounds that are unusable for outdoor gatherings, activities, or projects. Approximately 900 students and 50 staff members will help in the cleanup of the current trashed areas and the replacement of sustainable gardens.
The money received through this Fund a Project will be used to help pay for pavers and their installment, benches, mulch, weed barrier, irrigation systems, and plants.
