Notasulga Students Work to Connect School with Community (April 1, 2014)

Written by Blake Evans, AU Graduate Assistant.

Notasulga students met on Tuesday, April 1, to collaborate on their community garden and outdoor ecology classroom project.  The students collected four wooden pallets, which were donated by Vulcan Materials Company in Notasulga PlanLoachapoka.  The pallets will serve as planters for flowers and vegetables.  Additionally, the students began sketching plans for how they believe the finished space should look.  One of those plans is seen in the picture to the left.

The students have also thought about how they plan to design one of the mosaic tile benches.  They want to spell the word “UNITY” across the seat of the bench.  They selected that word because it reflects a value that Notasulga students Notasulga stonecherish.  Furthermore, the students plan to begin work on stepping stones soon.  To do so, they will go to different classes in their school to lead younger students through the process of creating unique stones.  The picture to the right is an example of what some might look like.
