We would like to help remedy poor soil quality by providing nutrients back into the soil through adding worms and compost. Adding Earthworms into our garden soil will help decompose dead organisms and increase the quality of the soil. Composting will also help our school be more sustainable.

This Festival will take place Sunday, December 10th, 2017. It will feature powerful art works, speakers and workshops. Performances feature works which combine world-class musicians, videos filled with natural images and the work of environmental artists and tapes which fill the space with 'music concrete' compositions comprised of hundreds of natural sounds. These works take the audience on a journey through natural settings and into mythological space. They shake people by the collar, make immediate the terror of climate change and leave them in spiritual awe at the beauty of nature. Speakers, such scientists and leaders of local environmental organizations will provide education and blue prints for action steps. We hope that this combination of Reason and Emotion may result in lasting action. There are two main events. The 11AM event is for family audiences, the evening event is more hard hitting.

We will take a field trip from Maplewood Elementary to the Travis County Landfill and then to Texas Disposal System's landfill and recycling center. Students will take a tour of the facilities and learn why it is important for us to recycle correctly and to reduce, reuse, or recycle at every opportunity. Green Team students will then return to school and teach their classmates what they learned on the trip, encouraging others to earn their 3Rs badges for their classrooms as they assist our custodial team with correctly, consistently recycling and composting in the classroom.
