Student research paper


My capstone project involved building a backyard garden and writing a blog to include my innovative approach to gardening. In the past few years, there have been disruptions in the food supply chain and the price of food has skyrocketed due to inflation. I can teach people how to grow food their family will enjoy in their own backyard. Fewer people will have to depend on the food provided in the grocery store. People will have a greater knowledge of what they are eating and how it was made. Those people who live in more rural areas will not have to worry about transportation to get fresh produce when it is available in their backyard. My blog teaches individuals how to plan, build garden boxes, plant seeds indoors, and explore the different options for materials to use within the garden.
