Roots & Shoots team members will help volunteer to help plant the bioinfiltration Garden at the Grand Island library. The garden collects water off the library parking lot, and filters it through the garden instead of letting the water go down the storm drain. Garden Contractor, Jeremy Vlcek, who owns Vlcek Gardens, will provide demonstrations to the community on how to effectively plant and care for the garden.
I would like the kids to get involved in making my school clean and pleasant to go to every day.

Here are some basic things we can do to help the environment: Not littering does the same thing as picking litter up; just not littering saves more of your own energy than picking it up. Saving water in the sink and shower reduces the load on sewer clean age plants, which pollute the air. Turning lights off can also help, as long as you don't turn them on, then off, then on again, because that wastes even more energy. We can make a positive difference if we all act to save the beauty and nature of the earth.
My project will be started by taking cuttings of native plants already present in my neighborhood, such as Wild Tamarind, Gumbo Limbo, and Fire Bush. I will then plant them around my school with the help of the rest of Ecology Club. I will add to our thriving native garden and create a "mini-forest" that will help increment the amounts of native insects, birds, and other small animals.
My project is long-term, and has already begun. Late last spring I had planted corn crops for the first time in my life. I had no experience back then so I did not get the best crop results, but they were decent. Then I had realized that you can legally make fuel out of corn that is safe to use at home. At the same time you can also eat the corn, and dry some kernels for a new crop. Growing just corn is a highly efficient crop to grow because of the many uses. Recently I have had the desire to grow edible plants from the seed. Apples are one of my favorite fruits, and I learned how to grow them too. You take the seeds, put them in a moist paper towel, and let them in the fridge until they sprout. Then you place them in a pot, and the trunk will start. This way you will get a decent amount of wood, and lots of delicious apples which you can donate to the local food bank!
Following our waste audit we found excessive amounts of paper in the recycling that hadn't been used to its full potential. We care about trees, and even though recycling is wonderful- we want to use every piece of paper as best we can before putting it in the recycling bin!
