Our mission as a horticulture focused enrichment group is to create a space at Renarts which provides all K-12 scholars with insight and hands-on experience into the functionality of urban, sustainable, and eco-friendly gardening. We will educate scholars by creating sub-irrigation tote-based systems that small groups will attend to, planting seed and or clippings, watering, and harvesting plants.
Scholars will have opportunities to:
Help aesthetically enrich various areas in and around the Renarts' campus
Help write and apply for independent foundation and government grants
Educate younger scholars on the benefits of sustainable gardening to emphasize the importance of environmentalism, cultivation, etc.
Build hydroponic systems
Go on agricultural based field trips
Collaborate with other enrichment groups such as animal and water science
Nourish compost bins
Cultivate an environment in which the biota attract species
