We will grow, harvest and deliver our fresh veggies and herbs once a month during growing season.

We will be measuring the amount of compost that is produced every week and track the usage of compost over time. We also hope to survey students on whether they actually use the composting bins that we have implemented. Finally, as a last measure, we will do soil testing through our AP Environmental Science class to see whether the composting regions are more nutrient rich.

For this project we will purchase a compost machine and have all of schools lunch remnants turned into nutrient rich compost for the garden. We will plant new flowers as well as fruits, berries, and vegetables. We will also be putting together a hydroponic garden. All of the food that is grown will be open to the public to be taken as needed. We will do all of this with the help of the Key Club community.

To kick off Spartan Service, we have developed a week of activities in which all 1100 of our high school students will have an opportunity to participate in. - Monday - With Meals of Hope, we will package 50,000 meals that will be donated to our local food bank. All students will have an opportunity to package meals that morning. Each meal is balanced, nutritious, and shelf-stable for up to 2 years. - Tuesday - We will send students to serve at our four feeder elementary schools. This will enable our high school students to give back to their former school and set an example to current elementary students for what to expect with service when they get to high school. Activities will vary at each school, but will include reading to students, cleaning up a nature trail, organizing teaching materials, painting murals on walls, and much more. - Wednesday, we will have over 700 students working to clean up our high school and middle school campuses. Students will be working in small teams on a variety of tasks: pressure washing, painting our fence, cleaning, laying pine straw, planting flowers, etc. - Thursday, all English classes will have students write at least two letters to military men and women to say Thank You for your service to our country. Letters will be delivered to service people over Thanksgiving when they are not able to be at home with their families. - Friday will conclude with a pep rally highlighting our students hard work and a keynote speaker from Chick-fil-A talking about the value of service. After our Spartan Service week, we will help students to begin tracking and reflecting on their service hours. Moving forward, we will have a calendar online that increases awareness of on-going service opportunities in our community with an easy way to sign up to participate.

Our project will show students how they can re-use simple items around their home for sustainable practices.

This project will increase awareness of the environment and natural resources available in our town and county. The Hyndman Greenhearts will utilize the school greenhouse to provide environmental education to elementary school children, grow plants to be used in community beautification and speak to various groups around town about environmental preservation in our community.

Students and teachers turn and monitor compost, checking pH, temp, and other soil variables. The DOOR Program will be working closely with the ecology club to monitor the process and create some wonderful compost!
