Having a start
We started off by
cutting 3 main
wooden poles to
makes the bases
so
that
the
vertical
garden
had somewhere to
put the plants,
everyone
collaborated
exceptionally and
with good attitude
cutting the woods.

Helping others
Cutting
and
measuring
that
the poles were
exact
was
not
easy, the students
at year 13 also
helped measuring
and cutting the
wooden poles. Mr.
Fernando
also
helped.

Preparing the poles to fit


There needed to
be 1 large pole to
go horizontally
and 2 vertically.
These created the
vertical garden. In
the wooden poles
there needed to
be a space for the
upper bar to rest
on.

Collaborating with everyone

Everyone
had the
chance to
collaborat
e!

Finished project
After a long term,
we managed to
finish the vertical
garden, the plants
that where hanged
were made by the
girls In our group.
Once we had this
we moved on to
the water pumping
system.

Water pump
Guillermo Paz,
from the
Germinator
group helped us
install the water
pump, this was
a system to
give water to all
the plants with
one single
pump of water.

Ecological Flower pots


As
a
Environmental
group we make
items
from
recycled items.
For example the
flower pots are
made
from
recycled bottles
and
some
artistic work.

The girls helping


The girls in
our group
were in
charged of
designing and
creating the
flower pots
from recycled
bottles.

Second vertical garden


As of now we
have created
two vertical
gardens around
the school which
I think really
promote our
group and the
idea of
environmental
care.

Project reflection
We started this project about end of February and we just finished
it today June. At the start of the project we had some difficulties
for example we did no had groups and we had to fill in forms which
were difficult a start. Once we divided into different groups to
complete our projects it got much easier, my group was 6 people
and the all helped building the vertical garden. I was the leader
and observed that everyone was doing their job and if they needed
help I helped them. Mario and Alejandro where like the second
leaders which helped cutting the wooden poles and again helping
with the vertical garden. Juan Jose and Mateo were in charged of
the Water pump system which was placed correctly but still needs
some more adjustments. Daniel was in charged of placing the
flower pots and Ari was in charged of recording the progress. Some
times we all changed responsibilities to have some variety but still
managed to have the vertical garden completed. Generally I was
really proud with my group because everyone collaborated,
specially with Mario and Alejandro which were great second
leaders helping and giving solutions for problems we came when
building the vertical garden.

Other projects
A ecological
compost from
fruits was
made, this
compost is
similar to
fertilizer. Which
was used
create the
germinator
which was
another project.

Other Project
The germinator,
this is like a
green house but
in small
proportion. Here
we grow the
plants until they
are big enough to
plant them
outside the
school or place
them in the
vertical garden.
