Leadership Trees and Bottle Garden Project
Leadership Trees and Bottle Garden Project
Project Aim: Using leadership trees and a living garden bottle wall to address land degradation, increase ecological diversity, increase physical activity, increased kinesthetic learning in core vertical competencies such as Financial IQ in a cleaner learning environment that promotes creative unstructured play.
The Leadership Tree and Small Business Bottle Garden Project will:
1. Relieve school flooding
2. Lock away carbon dioxide on school grounds
3. Educate our Leaders of Tomorrow to become stewards of nature so they can lead reforestation and other environmental initiatives
4. Train students how grow their own food while learning the benefits of eating healthy and financial/business IQ.
5. Provide a source of revenue to the school and students
Phase One of the project will introduce leadership tree planting (up to 200 trees) as part of a leadership lesson already being done in the classroom. It introduces youths to the concept of being stewards of nature. Also leadership trees (in partnership with other NGOS and primary schools) will be provided for reforestation (approx. 200 fruit trees). The work has already begun as of the Sept 2013 school year.
Phase Two of the project will involve establishing /maintaining 10 manual and 2 automated vertical wall gardens in schools to be used as a method to teach children not only agri-science, but to also teach them entrepreneurial skills and Financial I.Q. A variety of up to 2000 vegetable and seasonings plants will be grown and shall be erected on vertical surfaces of the school compound. The produce from the school wall gardens will be sold to local hotels and restaurants (commitment already from Normandie Hotel etc. ) and the proceeds will be used as a form of income in a 50/50 split with school/students. We have already set up and tested a beta on the wall garden at Grande Agro to work out any agri issue.
