Our project will inform the residents of Alexandria City of the concerns involving plastic waste and the overall need for a cleaner community.

Students will construct a composting station that educates students on what is compostable and what is not. We will have a design competition in the middle school to encourage students to get involved in the process. In addition, students will also present to the school community the importance of our composting program and how composting will be done on campus. Each compost station will have a student volunteer who will help kids learn which items can be composted and then the buckets of compost will be taken to the school garden.

By investing a lot of effort and planning into marketing and promotional advertisements, Eco Freaks plans to find innovative ways to get the North Hollywood community to reduce, reuse, and recycle. By connecting with the school's ASB Leadership, Eco Freaks will expand marketing through the production and dissemination of recycling posters. By reaching out to the Los Angeles Conservation Corps' Recycling, Eco Freaks will solidify a partnership with the Corps in hopes to receive profit from collected recyclables. By distributing recycling bins throughout all classrooms on campus, Eco Freaks hopes to promote good recycling habits. And by constituting a sustainability plan, Eco Freaks hopes to make recycling a permanent feature on campus.

Our project will inform students of the physical and mental health benefits associated with gardening and how they can be change agents in their community. Our students are impacted by crime, poverty, and gang violence on a daily basis so in order to combat these daily stresses, that can hinder their educational experience, our project will provide a healthy escape for our students. Students will be taught proper care, maintenance, and upkeep of their garden by Mr. Lennahan our 8th grade science teacher. In the process of caring for the plants I hope for this to be a meditative experience for them too. Additionally, our project will encourage students to eat more healthy foods by informing them of recipes they can use their vegetables for. Further, our project will enhance our students overall learning outcomes by incorporating a more hands on learning experience through their interactions with the garden.
