1.Students will work with the school community as well as the community to create a reflection garden. We have a raised bed garden which was started last year and would like to be able to incorporate a place where students can sit and reflect and find a peaceful place. We would accomplish by researching about reflection gardens, decide on a design and search for community resources and resources already available to us through the doe. In addition, I have registered for a class to teach educators how to implement and fund garden projects. ( New York Botanical Gardens , gardening 101 2/19- 2/25). 2. If students committ to decreasing plastic bags used in their community , they will create a public service challenge message to use less bags, design, sell and educate students, teachers and parents to use reusable bags.

The #ProjectPeace initiative will consist of: the facilitation of creatively formatted interviews, the offering of "Peace Pledge" cards, conference style engagement with government leaders, collaboration with mental health professionals and community peacemakers, and seasonal hosting of arts events that will draw the attention of local, national, and global leaders through a documentary style production. Through its digital and social media sharing component, we will create awareness of this important cause throughout the world. We will measure the success of the initiative by tracking the amount of "Peace Pledges" we receive (in-person and online), funding raised, resolutions obtained through government officials and policymakers, social media engagement, event attendees, changes in statistics on violence as reported by respective police departments, and our organization's capacity building.
