North Park Montessori


Project Description:
After surveying unused school grounds, students decided they wanted to beautify the area by transforming it into a beneficial and fruitful land. Students designed a small apple orchard, researched different aspects of starting and managing an orchard, measured the land, and planted apple trees. Part of this project was study of availability of water in our area, aquifer and floodplains, environment and local plants, beneficial insects and invasive species, as well as human impact on the local environment.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship:
Students are more aware of their responsibilities around water resources.
