We will plant many butterfly and bird-friendly plants (mostly flowers and hopefully some that attract our native monarchs!) and create a sitting area as well as artwork and a peace pole showing the community that this is a quiet area for personal reflection. Many birds visit our garden when it is just me but when students (who can make a little more noise come) many of the birds and butterflies leave so we are hoping to have the back park be a silent area that will attract birds and butterflies all throuhgt the day.

We will write poetry about the beauty of nature and the importance of living in peace. We will create books of these poems to share with our families and friends. We will also paint the panes of recycled windows to reflect the subjects of our poems and help students see the beauty around them.

The Power of Sacred Places and Music: Students study sacred places in conjunction with orchestral participation. As they move through both they begin to understand what a sacred place is, how different cultures, beliefs and religions or no belief in religion can still find an inner peace through the participation of building the labyrinth and allowing for all people to have a place to contemplate and relax. The orchestral aspect is part of the journey of sacred spaces, is music a sacred space, can all people find commonalities through music and the labyrinth. The culminating aspect of this project is visiting Israel and building a labyrinth with those in an orchestra and the young people they work with, in addition to a performance with everyone from the Houston and the Israel Orchestra. Everyone has the potential to work together peacefully regardless of differences. We can make this world a better place when we decide to learn from each other in a loving and accepting manner.

We have started with one student intern this summer, and have tackled two main projects this summer - 1) Creating an educational book on the colonia of San Angel to be published in both Spanish and English available to students parents, and schools in and outside of Mexico. 2) Make strides for enabling the two greenroof gardens to be attractions and learning tools to guide individuals of how they too can be more active in enabling environmental projects and learning. After projects are completed (these initial two) we will promote the Go Fund Me project even more to gain support for future projects, with those donating having a say in some of the projects we take on!

On Saturday, 16 April, NY is a Great Place to Bee! Worker Bees will teach 62 girls from Kindergarten through 5th grade (and some of their parents) about bees, how they live, why they are important, what is threatening them, and how we all can help at an Earth Day celebration at Camp Addisone Boyce in Tomkins Cove, NY! There will be interactive games to learn about bee communication such as pheremones and how honey bees communicate by dancing, and there will be a honey making activity that involves girls pretending to be bees gathering "nectar" (water) and "pollen" (yellow pompoms) from specially designed "flowers." There will also be a presentation to the whole gathering on ways to help bees, so they can pick their "Way to Bee!"

All students in grades K-5 at Nicely and Metzgar Elementary Schools in the Greensburg Salem School District will participate in a hands-on service learning project. This service-learning project combines a "teaching and learning approach that integrates community service with academic study to enrich learning, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities." Each student will create a individual project that will be donated to a local agency or group of individuals. All 400 students at Nicely Elementary School will be responsible for planting flowers and decorating flower pots that will be presented as gifts to residents of local nursing and assisted living homes. 300 Metzgar Elementary School Students will be making beaded bracelets for residents of local nursing and memory care homes. These student will also be able to design and decorate a place-mat that will be laminated and donated to local Meals-On-Wheels Programs. Following these activities, students will be asked to reflect upon their experience and discuss how they felt completing these projects. In addition to large and small group discussions students will be asked to complete a reflection activity survey. Lastly, information will be sent home with students so that the discussion can continue with parents, guardians and with members of our community.

The Children's Peaceful Garden project is underway and will continue this spring to be added to and grow more edible and perennial fruits, flowers, herbs, and vegetables, add native, shade-loving plants to our greenroof chicken coop, improve our low-wind generation system and seesaw pump, add to our apiary and bee sanctuary, upgrade our composting operations, install another rain barrel and more drip irrigation, all to demonstrate and teach children how to conserve water and energy, what it means to have a zero carbon footprint, and why to make healthy choices by eating local, organic, and sustainable.

We will be giving the students ownership of the project by letting them brainstorm areas of need in our community, and then plan a service project. We will be brainstorming on March 7.
