This project will raise awareness and motivate people to start collecting and donating items.

We volunteered this summer in a junior gardening program with students from Waukegan. We helped to teach about the importance of composting and how it can give back important nutrients to our soil and decrease hazards to the environment. We also picked up fresh produce from areas where it was not needed and delivered it to food pantries and community organizations that distributed it to people who do need it. Watching the "Wasted", Anthony Bourdain, documentary was also very helpful in understanding the problem. We also gleaned at a local farm and delivered that produce to people who needed it.

This project helped to introduce the students, families and their friends to one another, try new dishes and talk about new and healthy ways to eat. It also started conversations about our environment as the park and weather was so beautiful.

We are going to enclose and cultivate an unexploited piece of land at the yard behind the school. At the beginning of the project the help of the village community will be essential. The pupils will seed and adopt this piece of land throughout the year. In the school garden we will plant ornamental flowers, fruit trees and vegetables. Later, when the shoots grow, we will organize a day of healthy diet and focus on the importance of vegetables and fruits. This event will be open to the all the residents of the village and the local authorities.

We will map out the available grocery stores and markets in the school neighborhood to see the types of food accessible to the school community. We will also make a food chain with the children and see where the food from their lunch came from.

Our campaign will be successful if we are able to successfully compost the discarded lunch remains. Once added to the other grades garden beds, we hope to see growth. The garden beds are being replaced with non-toxic materials currently.

We'd like to create loving and caring cards, handwritten and handmade by the high school students of our Chapter program, to bring compassion and empathy to those facing food insecurity in their community. This will include a lot of construction paper, markers, glue, and other decorations to make each card stand out as unique and individually sealed with love.

crisis! We are teaming up with the non-profit organization Thirst Project to help educate our college community about what is going on in the world. We are taking a sustainability graduate class as a group and our working to raise awareness as well as funds to help build wells over seas. We are presenting around campus to different classes and clubs. We are also having the organization come and represent their work through a 45 minute presentation held on campus. We are hoping to use funding to help purchase refreshments to encourage attendance. We are also looking to use the funds for fundraising and soliciting materials such as flyers and fact handouts. Our end goal is to raise $12,000 through the CSUN community to help fully fund a well in Swaziland with the help of Thirst Project's resources.

We want to create a weekly news and information program the helps to showcase the amazing things we are doing as a school to the local community. Our hope is to video record this information and put it out on our website as a weekly update.
