My Unit 1 Action Project for my Food Redux course was to create and plan a ten-plant garden, and calculate what the volume of soil for that garden was going to be. I also had to discover and calculate how many living organisms were going to be in my garden creation. I learned about how different organisms interact with each other, and which ones go best with each other. I learned how to calculate living organisms and I was able to gather the confidence to present my garden plan infront of tow U of C professors! I am proud of my garden and what I learned while making it. I now know how to create a fully functioning ecosystem.
The reasoning behind the organisms I chose to plant in my garden is very simple. I wanted an aesthetically pleasing garden that observers would enjoy looking at. My garden is worth planting for many reasons. Not only will it be nice to look at, but also gardens are good for the earth. Gardens help keep the soil clean and nice, and they are a lovely gateway into other things, for example cooking your own meals. Once you being to cook your own food, your friends, neighbors, and family will be inspired to do the same.
Another reason my garden is worth spending time on is because it has many different organisms in it, so there is a lot of variety. There are ten different types of plants in my garden idea, and each goes very well with the other. Happy flowers equal happy and healthy soil. View my presentation below.
