For my capstone I wanted to do something that would have a lasting effect on the school. I was thinking about giving something to the school as part of my project. I started to think about my interests. One of my biggest interests is botany. I then decided I wanted to donate plants to enhance the decor of the school. I began my research at the Horticultural Society Library where I learned about which plants grow best indoors. I also learned about the effects plants have on work places - that they increase productivity and attendance. As well, there is the benefit of the oxygen that plants provide. My project then took me through the steps of purchasing, transporting and repotting the plants I chose for the area on the second floor outside the elevators (near the nurse's office). One of the greatest experiences I had while repotting the plants was with all the people who were walking by at the time. Everyone was saying that it was really nice, and it looked great. Other people stopped to asked me questions about my knowledge of plants and how to take care of their own plants. And some people had advice for helping me. My project will continue on after I leave SLA. I have passed on the torch to the students in the lower grades who have volunteered to take on the responsibility of watering and caring for the plants. I really enjoyed my project and I hope others will too for a long time to come. Below are some pictures of the area where the plants have found a new home.
