Students, from Parkland Middle School, in Enviro-Arts 7 took part in a large Social and Environmental Responsibility project. Through a generous grant from ArtStarts, all students had an opportunity to work with clay. They started with several small individual clay projects such as fish, frogs, bugs, mini birdhouses, Christmas trees and flower-pots. Once the students had the necessary skills developed to work more effectively with clay they started the Planter Group Challenge, the challenge entailed each group discussing and designing a unique planter. Goals of the project were to make the planters, grow plants and deliver the planters to the residences of Joseph Creek Village and to the Dr. Green Memorial Home. The students took a trip on Tues May 29 th to deliver their fabulous creations. One comment from a student, after leaving Joseph Creek Village, follows, "Did you see that place, I can't wait to get old. They get movie night and everything." Later, on May 31st, two members from the Garden Club came into the classroom to receive the pieces that were donated to the Cranbrook Garden Club.
