We are going to host a carnival during lunch with traditional carnival games that have an environmental twist to them. ASB will volunteer at the event along with other environmental clubs helping out. Also, environmental organizations that we worked with throughout the year will be coming back to have a booth on campus. Student may be able to earn service hours by participating and there will be live music and prizes given out!
Our project will gather all the recycle materials from dumps and bins, starting from school and continue to surrounding community, and create the useful products from it.
Enable the children and their families to share their gardening efforts with the local community (be it insect or human!) by providing vegetables, herbs and spices. We are building our second garden box, made from salvaged resources like wood pallets. The design and inspiration came from the website: http://foodisfreeproject.org/ Constructing and maintaining these garden boxes improves the environment and exposes the children to gardening skills and new foods for health. May also be an opportunity to spotlight certain herbs, spices or plants to educate children about other cultures (through cuisine or other cultural traditions) - building bridges between cultures. To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson "To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition."
My goal for this project is to set up collection boxes within the community so people can easily drop off their old electronics. I have handed out flyers to let people know where they can drop their electronics off, and many flyers will remain in the town's garden center, so people can pick them up as they choose.
