Each year, we have anywhere from 80-200 volunteers. All the volunteers work very hard from 9 am – 12 pm, to collect trash, pulled out weeds(do not allow any and all harmful chemicals on our grounds), re-mulched the trees, flower beds and the nature trail. Girl Scout Troop participate on our Earth Day by teaching our volunteers about water conservation and have “Recycle Craft” table where we teach the volunteers/public how to make everyday items (e.g., bows) from recycled materials. Each year, we preserve our nature and environment by weeding, mulching, watershed clean-up, learning about water preservation and learning to use recycled materials. We work with Longwood University in their Clean Virginia Waterway project by providing trash collected data. Additionally, we sponsor watershed cleanup twice a year in conjunction with our neighboring high school students. We are teaching these students how to participate and lead such events.

We plan to paint each white classroom building (each is a single classroom) with low VOC environmentally friendly paint, and build a beautiful ecologically friendly garden in all the open areas between buildings and along the paths. We will paint a variety of murals with green messages, especially the three R's - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We will generate informational signs about environmental stewardship and ways for teens to make a positive impact.

Throughout the week of April 20-24, the kids will identify what waste can be reused and which can be recycled. They will discuss ways to reduce human paper and water waste. They will collect litter on Earth Day and take a walk to the waste and recycling dumpsters. Children will sort items and determine which is recyclable and what needs to be put into trash. The children will practice limiting the number of paper towels they use after washing their hands. They will discuss turning the water off when scrubbing their hands and while brushing their teeth as a way to conserve water. Teachers will supervise these practices while the kids are in school. The children will make picture showing hand washing and brushing of teeth with the water turned off. The first week of May the kids will plant their flower seeds in the flower beds and keep them watered.

Our project is to create an activity book to educate children about Earth Day and about the environment. Members will create a puzzle book by hand drawing pictures and combining them on the computer. Ecoharmony will also host fundraising activities to raise funds to cover the cost of printing the activity books. We will either contact the librarian to see if we can again set up a table at the library to distribute activity books, speak with an elementary school principal to see if any of his classes would be interested in having some activity books, or we will apply to the city's Parks & Recreation Department to see if we can get a booth to pass out our activity books at the Earth Day Festival.
