I want to start a school compost garden using Black Soldier Flies. They are a non nuisance fly that devour organics (including meat!). They can either be released or fed to chickens or fish as a high protein organic food source. This will reduce food waste from the cafeteria and help students get involved and engaged in community development, science, and nature.

This will be done through video camera trapping, signs at nature centers, and educational programs for the communities, which will all help to keeping bobcats off of the endangered species list. By raising local awareness I am also hoping to get people interested and involved in similar issues outside of their local community, such as conservation projects helping big cats in Asia or Africa.

Our project will take many, many pounds of largely non-recyclable plastic packaging out of the waste stream as well as removing litter from our community and the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Our bench will also be a visual representation of how much litter we generate and the possibilities of repurposing it. Since February 2014, we have been saving all of our plastic packaging, both from home and from school, as well as using all of the plastic litter from our school campus, and stuffing it into bottles to make bottle bricks. Our after-school club constructs bottle bricks; students in my class make bottle bricks by choice at recess or other free time, and students and staff make bottle bricks at home. We are working with a local nonprofit and with the East Coast representative of the international Peace on Earthbench Movement to construct our bench.

Several students work at a local family-owned restaurant. They noticed that food such as the outer leaves of lettuce, melon rinds, celery tops, and the like were being thrown away. In their concern about the wasted food, the students noticed a wildlife refuge, Izzy's Pond, in the community. After some brainstorming, the students decided by majority vote to collect the vegetation at the restaurant. The leafy parts will be donated to the fowl life at Izzy's Pond. The rest will be composted for a community garden.

This type of action should never really end but I will volunteer at the school's Summer Music and Art program supporting creativity amongst younger children, help at this year's graduation ceremony and other school related events to support the school and the overall community.
