I would like to begin as soon as we can with this project, while we are waiting for the thaw we will begin to sprout seeds inside of our classroom. We will then gather community members to clear the yard completely. We will gather shade loving plants as well as placing a layer of fresh compost, topsoil, and woodchips to make the place look like a woodland fairy garden. We have a set of logs and stumps that I would like to paint into mushroom toad stools. I will have the children make their own fairy stepping stones, out of poured cement. We will do all of the work allong with the class so that they can see what it looks like to care for our spaces.

We will purchase native, drought tolerant seeds and plants and plant them then tend to them on our campus to encourage increased biodiversity of flora and fauna. This will also beautify our campus.

Our garden was flourishing last year. The children were very excited to share in the Harvest as well as all of the work that needed doing to keep the garden healthy. I would love to replicate that experience again this year. Anyone that visits our school can see our beautification first hand.

we will (with permission) replenish vacant and undesirable spots with beautiful sweet-smelling wildflowers for the bees and for US!

This service learning project will introduce the importance of creating a cleaner and safer environment for people, plants, and wildlife on our campus and in the community. By integrating Missouri Girls Town's longstanding focus on life-skills training, youth will have the opportunity to not only interact with nature, but learn about their impact on the environment through litter disposal and recycling projects. Participants will be challenged to help eradicate litter and waste in one of two zones (either Zone #1-Campus, or Zone #2- Community). Gloves and safety wear will be provided to ensure participant safety. Each participant will have the opportunity to learn about the importance of creating a healthy, clean, and safe environment for all. The project will culminate with a celebration for all of the participants efforts in reaching our goal of creating a cleaner environment. This project will be part of an ongoing effort to introduce more service learning opportunities on Missouri Girls Town's campus.

I would like to hold a community clean up event on a Saturday as well as ask for tool donations. We will need to fertilize the soil in preparation for planting. We will plant seasonal vegetables that the students can grow, harvest, and eat. I live close to the school so I can look after the garden during long breaks. There are many fellow staff members willing to help and my class will be in charge of the area.

Freshman F.I.R.S.T. Roots & Shoots Campaign addresses local environmental needs related to conservation and preservation of natural resources, specifically in local watersheds, streams and parks. Our approach is to work enlist 385 grade nine students to collaborate with our science teachers, local environment and EPA specialist, civic and business leaders and community volunteers to address needs while actualizing or transferring knowledge gained in school to address local needs. The program objective is for all 9th graders, each who are enrolled in Environmental Science or Biology classes to take action and outreach to enlist at least one community volunteer (adult) to work with us to address the identified needs of our community watershed, creeks, banks, parks and recreational areas.
