Students will write "save the date" letters and updates to the residents of the two senior living facilities. They'll also prepare some entertainment for the residents such as Halloween songs, etc. They'll also read some books with the residents. Finally they'll parade through the facilities to model their Halloween costumes. All of this will bring back wonderful memories to the seniors!

We will build a raised garden bed from a kit and use organic soil and seeds to grow produce and herbs. The bed will be purchased from local source (Fig Earth Supply). We will explore the use of compost and learn about how other organisms support our garden. We started a Habitat Restoration project last year, so that project will contribute to a supportive environment for these edible plants. Our project will provide a long term learning environment in which to grow healthy food in a small space using micro gardening techniques used for centuries.

For our project we will work with the Green Mountain Falls Trails Committee buy and install at least one bear-proof trash can. We will also create student signs to educate and encourage people to pick up after their dogs. This signs will be installed along the trail. Lastly, we will design and build boxes for dog bags. Here people can repurpose plastic bags and people who do not have a bag with them will have a way to clean up after their dog.

We will host a free garden to table dinner for anyone struggling with hunger in our community. There is no full time soup kitchen in our community so we need to come together to fight hunger. A local church has opened their doors to us and has allowed us to use their kitchen to cook and Fellowship Hall to serve the dinner. We will use the harvest from our garden as the basis for our meals.

We will be learning about this during our weekly Roots & Shoots after school enrichment time. We will be using Project Learning Tree curriculum to understand more about our environment and the human impact that we have through our everyday actions. We will learn more about what plants and trees are around us and how they help us and how we can help them. We will investigate which plants and trees we need more of to balance our local ecosystem. We will be able to identify what plants and trees we currently have and, if needed, plant additional trees and plants.

Our project will capture the water that is created every day that the air conditioners are functioning on our campus. We will capture this water and route it to the farm on campus through PVC pipes into a trough for the the goats and other animals to drink. Excess water will be routed to the gardens on the farm where various vegetables are grown throughout the year.
