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.

Our project will show students how they can re-use simple items around their home for sustainable practices.
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.
We launched a three-week pilot program in conjunction with the school cafeteria company. They provided metal silverware and dishwashing services for students during this time. When the pilot ends, we will evaluate its success and likely ask students to bring their own silverware to school. Already, we have moved recycling bins to encourage recycling.
My wish is to provide kids with knowledge of nature at a young age. The older we get, the more closed off to new ideas we become. And for some people the idea of sustainability and connection to nature is very new. I want to make sustainability and connection to nature a "norm" in society. And lastly, I hope that this will spark a love for nature in young children that they can share with friends and family and that will eventually blossom into something even greater.
