We will work in collaboration with the members of our group to create a proposal for our school to begin a change towards solar energy.
Students will learn about healthy eating and what vegetables need to grow strong. They will learn about vermicomposting and we will have a vermicomposter in the classroom (our classroom pets). The liquid and soil from the composter will be used to enrich soil to grow fresh vegetables in the spring. We will start the plants in our classroom and transplant them when the weather gets warmer. The vegetables grown will be available to the students at school and to families in the community.
We will fix our school's Cafeteria to the point where it is able to recycle easily. We will add recycling bins and clocks.

My vegetable garden will help add nutrients into the soil. It will also produce good food to make us healthy. I will make my garden by watering the plants, not stepping on the plants and making sure it has sunshine.
Action: Cooking! Each week we offer vegan alternatives and also ecological food. We research and experiment vegan alternatives, changing traditional recipes into healthier and vegan results! We find and make collaborations with people, organizations and minorities that are producing ecological food to be our suppliers.

We see the necessity of adapting the project to our specific geographical and sociological situation. Through a community orchard and ecological consumption awareness we're expecting to compromise environmental and food education in the school. That's why we consider this to be a investigation process, which would evolve considering the situation's complexity. Once proved this methodology works, the children do get closer to, understand, and they feel reflected by nature, social structures will began to regenerate by its own. We are planning on planting a seed towards social tissue regeneration of our war-ripped country, now in peace treaties, in reformulating land's ownership.
