Our project will help in planting six trees on a barren street that contains very few plants. Our club is partnered with a non-profit organization called TreePeople who will help our volunteers learn the process of properly planting the trees. Many of our volunteers have the title as a Supervisor Volunteer because they have had experience with planting and caring for numerous trees. Their role is to assist any volunteer that is still unsure of the process or is their first time in planting trees. We will promote our event to our club to receive as many volunteers as we can get. Our club is always ready and happy to help the environment, and our supervisors will help in overseeing the event.

Our project will be to plant trees using compost from Cal State University, Northridge Sustainability Institute. We want to ensure that the trees will have a healthy start in order to survive in harsh conditions.

The students will engage in learning as they research, design and implement a plan to enhance their school campus by creating an insect habitat, providing nesting sites for birds, planting native plants to Coastal Georgia while learning how these organisms work together and how we can preserve yourselves and the habitat.

Walk around our neighborhood and pick up any trash- Replace lawn with native vegetation.

Our project will provide sanctuary for local wildlife, including but not limited to birds and insects. While we have some plants already that attract critters, we would like to incorporate more native plantings, which will also allow this to be a low water use yard. Our plan is to remove the remaining sections of lawn, and replace them with native grasses and flowers that would attract the bird, insect, and other local animal populations, incorporating the new plantings with the ones already established.

We are going to improve two areas on either side of the steps that lead up to our school. We are going to consider the drainage issues and potential plants that can enhance these areas while being conscious of the environmental impact on the landscape.

My 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 classes learned that seed balls made gardening easy, fun, and accessible. They learned that seed balls grow endangered wildflowers needed by pollinators, protect seeds from wind, birds, squirrels, and other critters, and has easy dispersal for more uniform coverage. So, they hand-rolled approximately 1,000 seed balls and shared them with their families and friends by distributing the seed balls with planting directions (the “guerilla” method of tossing the seed balls while hiking was the most popular to write about!) to entire school to take home to plant in their gardens. Many of my 2018-2019 class got to take these seed balls home as second graders and came into my third grade class at the beginning of this year not only wanting to make more seed balls, but teach our school something about our garden through a mural. So, my 2018-2019 class’ plan of action is to not only make more seed balls to share with our school community, but also to work with our 5th grade classrooms who are planning to help create the mural as part of their legacy gift to the school when they promote in the spring.

Our project will put the final touches on a year long endeavor by our students to raise community awareness of recycling by: reducing, reusing and recycling trash into an artistic sculpture.

I am going to create a team of people from my town. First, we are going to go door to door and ask people if they want to take action and save the bees. We will ask them to sign a petition saying they will not use harmful chemicals (pesticides, herbicides) on their property. We can also educate our neighbors about non-toxic methods to manage their yards. Second, we will go to town hall and ask to use public lands to plant bee gardens in the spring. A bee garden will include wildflowers, milk weed, bee homes, and a water bee bath with pebbles.
