The profit from this will be used to buy the everyday necessities, which we have, for people around the world. We are collecting the Gratitude of the people who are lucky enough to have the things that they have and transferring them into supplies for people who do not have the things that they need through the World Vision organization website.
Students will be working in groups to learn more about hydroponics, the nonprofit SEED, and ways that learning Arduino-hydroponics farming techniques might help urban communities like South LA. As this is our first year working on the project, we will start small--by installing small hydroponics systems with Arduino sensors in a small community garden. We hope that this will impact students by helping them make a difference within their own communities and help develop advocacy skills around food justice issues. We were inspired by the work by Steven Ritz, founder of the Green Bronx Machine in the South Bronx, NYC.

We plan to talk with the school cafeteria workers and try to convince them of providing us with fresh and healthy food. We plan to buy things such as gloves, hair-caps, napkins, dustbins and others so as to improve the sanitation of the surrounding. We plan to do this with the joint effort and agreement of the students, faculty, administration as well as the cafeteria.
I will have Roots & Shoots members send in their Christmas lists to the Macy's event to increase the amount of money they send to Make A Wish Foundation, a nonprofit that organizes amazing experiences for children with life threatening medical conditions.
Kids Need Support 2 Garden and Site Restoration will bring awareness, provide resources to children with many health disparities to combat their diseases, by cleaning the grounds, recycling, maintaining our gardens, painting, sanitizing the grounds for our Get Fit Program and Healing Gardens to succeed. We will take the food from the gardens, each child sits with the nutritionist to learn how to eat healthy and promote overall wellness. The children will cook the foods in the kitchen with a chef, who will teach them the purpose for gardening, living well and budgeting. The children will take foods to a local food pantry / shelter to combat malnutrition issues in the community. This will assist in our efforts to engage our community in Wellness programs, Awareness to Special Needs, and Building Stronger Communities overall.
This project will be for the 2015/2016 school year with the hope that community members will want to keep it going in future years.
