Activity Instruction:

Plant a seed and raise/maintain plant to full maturity. Reap a harvest. Give harvest to those in need in your community, which may be your own family.

With the seeds you have selected, raise a plant using what you have learned in SIS horticulture to full maturity and reap a harvest.

You are required to catalog and take pictures of the following:

What you did with your harvest, must take pictures.

7 weeks of plant growth (or however long it takes for plant to produce a crop) x 4 hours a week (daily care of plant) = 28 hours; 2 hours to write a reflection. 

Your photos will document your commitment to the process.

In order to earn service learning hours, a reflection needs to be turned into Mr. Binondo, who will input the hours into Power School. You need to address: What did you do? What did you learn? How was this an example of public service? What was it was like to raise and care for plants and what did you do with the fruits of your labor?
