The vegetable garden on campus is the largest current ongoing project. Seeds of Change Club members, Sarah Shutman and David Plunkett, have been working hard to get donations during these hard economic times.

We still need to construct the last two raised garden beds and finish the raised bed from old tree crates. The soil will need to be prepared for the next season. Also, the construction of a fence around the vent with a gate and a possible small tool shed or storage area.

Other proposed projects include a worm composting bin and a small greenhouse. I personally would like to see a nesting block or stick nest project for native polinators.
