The Sustainable Water Use Map will allow users to learn about how their local irrigation and sewage system works. It will also provide ideas and ways for them to conserve water use. My students will familiarize themselves with their local neighborhoods. They will map out and also survey the amount of water use in the community. Then, they will come up with ways to eliminate wasted water or to repurpose the water that is being used excessively.

Create fundraisers in forms of events, social gatherings or parties. Do a bake-sale, garage sale, anything you'd like to come up with that you feel is worth doing. The funds would go towards the purchasing of land- whatever your portion, you would be entitled to that land. Given our stance on nature in this group, the wildlife would therefore benefit from our rights granted upon it. Setting up a personal goal of how much you'd like your part to be is within your choice. If you want to know the price for an acre of the land, feel dre to reach out to me and ask. Thank you for your attention.

We are a group of first and second graders living in Tel Aviv and attending an after-school English program. We are learning about Dr. Jane Goodall and were excited to find out about the roots & shoots program! After studying our neighborhood we realized that many people around us don't know how important nature is! We live in a big city and and are lucky to have beautiful parks and beaches close by, but sometimes the air is dirty, people don't always recycle, and trees and plants aren't always appreciated. We want our project to help people appreciate, love and enjoy nature! We are working on an educational campaign and are excited to begin our project!

The Peace Picnic is a community bring n' share which is open to all. It is to promote camaraderie as well as an appreciation for nature. We will be gathering in the city's botanical gardens, a lush, green setting - perfect for a morning under the trees. The approach is that this is not a "formal" event and everyone is welcome, and that sharing (of mats, food, etc) in encouraged. Posters of the event have been circulating via social media along with directions to the event area and handy tips for the day. This event will be held on Sept 17th, the weekend before International Day of Peace. A few of us will be building the dove puppet and having everyone else join us as we "fly" it in the park!

A school generates a tremendous amount of waste every day. Much of it paper and plastic. The idea is to reduce (Do we need to make copies and handouts? Or can we just do work in a book or digitally? Can we use water fountains or reusable bottles instead of plastic cups and bottles?) the amount of waste that we are producing and properly recycle the things that would otherwise end up in a landfill. We will start on a classroom level, each teacher making sure that they are collecting plastic, paper, and compostable materials, and then expand to the school. Our scholars will then realize the importance of recycling and also how easy it is to do!

The children's gardens at Kids Express are producing a good harvest this summer and the children are raising money to "adopt" a goat by selling some of their produce to families at Kids Express Learning Center. The children ages 4-8 will hold weekly mini farmers markets on the school grounds. The hope is to raise $120.00 for the price of a goat through Heifer International. We have held several farmers markets already this summer and expect to earn the money by the end of the month of September. The children will name the goat and receive email updates about where the goat was placed. Additionally, Heifer International's website provides information about goats and a picture of their sponsored goat.

Our grant will fund the purchase of plants, supplies and tools to plant the garden. Students in 2nd-3rd grade and the Nature Club will work together to plant, water and maintain the garden. We welcome all classes to use this area as an outdoor classroom and observe that when we "grow it - they will come!"
