Creating a Sustainable Garden Project

In this project, students will learn about the importance of sustainable gardening practices and how they can be implemented in their own homes and communities. The learning outcomes for this project include:

  • Understanding the principles of sustainable gardening
  • Identifying the benefits of sustainable gardening
  • Designing and creating a sustainable garden
