Starting off, the students will work in teams to highlight the issue of deforestation and specific effects on local communities--especially farmers, students, and the environment. Then, after drafting papers, they will make presentations among their peers and finally to their community. They will then plan a day of community gathering where they will make their presentations to community leaders and their families and plant tree saplings around their targeted area of their school and a local forest.

I have been collecting recyclable bottles from classrooms in school. Not everyone uses reusable bottles. That should be my next PSA! Each bottle yields 5 cents which I accrue to donate to CoolEarth, a foundation that saves rainforest acreage. I have saved 2.5 acres so far.

Mountaintop removal is a radical form of coal mining in which entire mountains are literally blown up -- and it is happening here in America on a scale that is almost unimaginable. But mountaintop removal can be stopped -- with the help of people like you. Sign the pledge here: http://ilovemountains.org/act/ The Clean Water Protection Act is a bill in the US House of Representatives which will sharply reduce mountaintop removal coal mining by protecting our headwater streams, where our rivers, like the Mississippi and the Ohio, are born. Over 2,000 miles of streams have already been buried and polluted. But we can stop this. Contact your Representative today and ask them to become a cosponsor of the Clean Water Protection Act.

We will continue to live as sustainably as we possibly can, which for us means that if we take something from the Earth, like organic fruits or vegetables that we grow, we return something, like vermicompost. If we want to observe the life cycles of monarch and other butterflies, we plant hosts to attract them and place them in our mariposario where they can live in a safe environment. If we want to give thanks for all that our community provides, we offer art, our ears and hearts, a chance to reuse clothes and educational toys and games, education, and our voices to support that community.

The project will improve the care for the plants within the school, perhaps increase the number of native plants and attract animals. Each class will adopt a particular area of campus to focus on in their care. The students will research the types of plants there are and what kind of care they need. The students will then care for the plants.

The project will not only beautify our school landscape but it will teach our students all the steps involved in designing, preparing, and planting native plants. The project will bring our community, parents, and students together in creating a drought tolerant garden.

We are currently working to open up space for new trees and our future interpretative trail. In collaboration with the neighboring campus of the University of Puerto Rico and its professors and students , we will design and build the trail. Students, parents and teachers will work together to plant the new trees and create a new set of garden beds as part of our Tropical Food Forest. Some trees have been donated as well as the tools used in both projects.
