This project is for my food redux course. The purpose of this project was to make a blueprint of a garden because in the future GCE is planning to cultivate a garden. In my research, I learned a lot about different plants and how they grow. In addition, I learned that plants need a sufficient amount of water and sun. You can see my garden plan and what it means above.
My Garden Plan:
The plants I chose to put in my garden were malali melon, purple dove bean, Rosa Bianca eggplant, red rubin herb, white satin carrot, Hokkaido Stella blue squash, sweet purple asparagus, hookers corn, ring-o-fire cayenne pepper, and all blue potato. I chose these plants because I thought they were very unique and they would make the garden look extraordinary. Also I chose these plants because I thought they would taste delicious and they are not usually found in stores. Not to mention these plants are good for people to eat.
Having a garden is the most environmentally healthy way to grow food. Growing your own food is perfect because you cut out the middle man and you don’t need to deal with the GMOs and other unnatural substances they put in plant foods, not to mention it is fresher. Planting your own garden is also better for the environment because there are less trucks on the road and soon there will be less air pollution too.

This garden helps the soil by holding it together. This garden helps feed humans because all the things that are planted in this garden can either be eaten or cooked with other items.
I chose to design the garden that wide and tall because I needed space to place a lot of plants. Also some foods take up a lot of space and some plants go good next to each other so they can cooperate together.
