I've created lessons which we use more technology devices rather than papers. All lecture notes will be available in our Facebook group, projects will be created by cell phones or other devices that has a camera for recording videos(students should create short films based on the topic of the lesson), class quizzes will perform online and the only way I'll use paper is for homework(some questions related to the day's lecture) that's unfortunately a rule I can't change as the school needs a type of evidence(so called notebooks and homework) to be sure we are doing our jobs. Hope I can help a little to our mother Earth!

It will last all year and it will involve getting each grade to go through this process and develop unique projects

My project is to show the world that our country has Dokdo, and it has nothing to do with Japan and other countries. I would like the people who read this to feel the way we koreans do everytime someone says Dokdo is Japan's. WE KNOW that this island is ours, and we will do our best to prove this.

My project, "Clean Up!", will encourage kids and adults of all ages to join our group, and help us keep Tennessee clean! I will do it by advertising the State Wide Clean Up Day in as many newspapers I can, then I will gather all the voulenteers I can get and start the Clean Up! by everyone bringing anything they can put trash in and get to work!
Bokashi workshop was organized as a part of the Slow Festival in Katowice in Silesia. These workshops have already became the formula with tradition inmany countries. We decided to install its in Poland. Bokashi teach art workshops environmental protection by using a method based on properties of probiotic strains of bacteria - their ability to ferment and antioxidation. We follow them mostly for children and adolescents due to educational and therapeutic qualities. Working with the original material in the form of clay, water, cane molasses, bran cereal, which under the influence of beneficial bacterias changes, shows what power resides in nature and provides the cognitive world of microorganisms. Coincidental combination of these ingredients creates leaven the dough of clay, in which microbes multiply. With such a mass one can model their own Bokashi balls - mud vehicles to transport micro-organisms in to degraded aquatic ecosystems. In this environment, the dose of bacteria derived from bullets is able to restore the biological balance. In Chorzow we have set our table with bowls for ingredients to make balls in the workshop area of the festival. There came different people, mostly children, some of theme were "brave" enough to touch balls without gloves (what, after all we wanted! touching the ground bare hand and feel it). We tipped balls workshop participants to be able to fertilize their organic flowers, lawns, and most of all bodies of water, or symbolically toss balls to their home rivers that flow through their place of living. We hope that such workshops inoculated in young budding minds of the cops thought that grows out of close contact with the ground, the rescue polluted rivers, lakes and joints. Workshops like this in a big scale would be the possibility to revitalise rivers, lakes or even seas.

With 20 hours of daylight, the garden flourished in the bush of the Alaskan tundra on the Bering Sea! It was a great success and the fence was secured to keep out the moose, rabbits, dogs and wolves. It was an ongoing process and will continue to be used hopefully for many years. In the long daylight hours of the Alaskan summer, weeds have an excellent opportunity to thrive therefore we taught children how to discern weeds from cultivated plants and some of the "weeds" such as chamomile were harvested and used for tea, food and medicine. It is much work cultivating in the acidic tundra soils however the garden progressed beautifully and with great success. Children are learning, planting, weeding, watering and observing. We worked in the garden several hours a day and Kenkamken's aana (mother in Yup'ik Eskimo language) was welcome to harvest any time although she lived quite a distance from the garden at Lake Aleknagik. "This is your garden" I explained when she visited. While still in mourning for her daughter, she was deeply moved to tears by the Kenkamken Memorial Garden. She was thoroughly touched to be engaged in the garden that bears her daughter's name in Yup'ik language. I told her that she is welcome to have the plaque that I painted and hung on the garden in Kenkamken's memory with the state flower of Alaska, Myosotis, forget-me-not painted on it. Kenkamken's aana took the plaque and I believe it is an inspiration and a blessing for her to continue to cultivate in Kenkamken's memory. Her son, Pipiisiiq will continue to cultivate in his beloved sister's memory as a way to bring comfort and beauty to his family's life. The garden was a meeting place of solace. Some made paintings of the beautiful flowers. Children delighted in hunting for peas, strawberries and spinach leaves (like Popeye consumed for strength!) every day and they loved to see the potato plants push up through the soil. The children so enjoyed tasting fresh chives and sweet baby carrots. Yup'ik elders visited and harvested and shared their ethnobotanical uses of wild harvested plants. We shared with visitors every day and welcomed all. There are some farmers' markets in the town of Dillingham however our garden produce was free! Obtaining nutritious pesticide-free produce is a great challenge in the long winters in Alaska. Many suffer from nutritional deficiencies, which in turn affects physical and mental health. Cultivating in the acidic tundra soils was a great deal of work but the garden developed beautifully, collectively and successfully. The garden will live on……and so will Kenkamken's blessed memory.

I will remove buck thorn, which is one of the most aggressive invasive species in my region. Around the natural pond in the preserve there are willows and other noninvasive species that are being smothered by the buck thorn. Almost five years ago a tornado traveled directly through the land and killed many of the pine trees, I will work to remove the dead and fallen trees to restore the peaceful serenity in the preserve.

I would like to create a California native plant /xeriscape (low water use) park, that will provide habitat to our diverse wildlife, as well as a learning tool to educate the community on the importance of eliminating the use of Turf grass in landscapes to conserve water. I will accomplish this by helping to organize a team of landscape architects, volunteers, and donors from varying fields whom may share in my vision of a place that I like to call. the Freelands park Thank you, Jerred Branch *I am NOT writing as a representative of RSABG
