Freshman F.I.R.S.T. Roots & Shoots Campaign addresses local environmental needs related to conservation and preservation of natural resources, specifically in local watersheds, streams and parks. Our approach is to work enlist 385 grade nine students to collaborate with our science teachers, local environment and EPA specialist, civic and business leaders and community volunteers to address needs while actualizing or transferring knowledge gained in school to address local needs. The program objective is for all 9th graders, each who are enrolled in Environmental Science or Biology classes to take action and outreach to enlist at least one community volunteer (adult) to work with us to address the identified needs of our community watershed, creeks, banks, parks and recreational areas.
We will be selling green pack shirts to students and parents at school that they can purchase and wear at the green pack game. Profits will go toward plants for a garden at school. We will wear the green shirts at the game to spread awareness to recycle and protect our environment. The mayor will be speaking during halftime as well about community environmental efforts.
We will dedicate two hours after school to clean up the CHS campus. It is very dirty and needs help being cleaned.
every week, we would like to organize the activities for school children in the organic farm of RRYMT.com , help them understand the organic agriculture. Everybody can contact us via m.rrymt.com or 4006581300.

Plant more saplings Raise awareness to save water and save electricity I will do it by asking my schoolmates and friends to assist in the club activities.
Our project will be that we set up a worm farm in our classroom. We will compost the remains of our snacks to increase the good fertile soil and then put that soil in our school garden. The soil will help promote growth of the vegetables that are being grown to help feed those in need in our community.
This year, one of the biggest shortcomings that the students of Roots&Shoots have noticed at Aptitud was the lack of a recycling program. In an effort to start a recycling program, we reached out to the City of San Jose to help get some free recycling supplies. After the City of San Jose provide us with the materials that we needed, including plastic and paper recycling bins, we were able to start a recycling program at Aptitud, and thus show the kids that making a tangible effect on their environment is a reality.
The DMS Green Team will build a compost bin, begin collecting food waste from the cafeteria, place the food waste (along with dried leaves and grass) in the bin, work the piles of waste until it becomes compost, and then apply the compost to our vegetable and native plant gardens. Students will track the amount of food waste coming from the cafeteria to the compost bin, measure the volume and temperature during the composting process, then be a part of applying the compost to the gardens.
I will give talks to high school students and university students.
Take a trash can. Make holes throughout the trash can. Combine dry grass and twigs with organic waste. Mix it up. Wait. Collect rewards.
