So I'm starting a program at a local youth center (YMCA actually) that is getting the children involved with planting an edible garden, consisting of veggies, greens, fruits, flowers, trees- both fruit and nuts. Also, Im going to start worm bins there to teach them how to properly dispose of their food scraps, and utilize everything.
Does anyone have any good ideas/ projects I could do with them? Or does anyone know how to write up a proposal? I have already had the green light, but I dont think they are totally aware of all my plans. I want to approach them with a "proper" propsal written out in a well educated form :)
I dont want them to shut down the ideas of planting berries all along the south east facing hill, getting worm bins, putting up apple, pear, peach, cherry, walnut, hickory, etc all over the place. I gave them ideas of how serious I am and what I want to do, but I hope they dont think Im just putting up some dinky little veggie bed (which is better than nothing).
Has anyone done something like this that can point out what they enjoyed, or what they would change to make it a more succesful project? I want to make this as best as possible because I am moving in a few months. I want someone else to be able to take over while everything is almost completed. I also want the children to be able to know whats going on for the most part by the time I leave so they can rage it without troubles, and hopefully start something at their own homes!
