Our project allows members in the North Camden community to grow and collect their own produce for free. The remaining food is donated to a local church where they use it in their weekly food drives. This project was created by hardwork and determination from the Camden residents and numerous donations. What was once a vacant lot soon became a vibrant community garden! The garden is now maintained by community members and outside volunteers almost everyday. We want to make sure the garden continues to benefit the neighborhood, which requires constant watering and weeding.

A new school year brings new faces to Roots&Shoots. As seniors graduate, new freshman act as replacements. To start the year, it was proposed to do a team-building field trip. With the first major holiday being Halloween, it was decided that an evening trip to a haunted corn maze would be ideal. This trip will give students an opportunity to get to know one another while having some festive fun.

As a school community, we strive to give each student an equal opportunity to achieve their full potential within the STEM program regardless of their personal backgrounds or abilities. This is why it is essential for this program to create and maintain a space were students feel safe, included, and have the ability to learn social emotional skills that will aid them throughout the remainder of their lives and educational journeys. We strive to be a leader in educating students about mental, social, and emotional health. For this reason, we will include programs such as Human Animal Bond in Tennessee (H.A.B.I.T), Restorative Practices, and Social Emotional Learning Programs. The space being funded will be utilized as a one-on-one space for students to interact with the Restorative Interventionist or Social Worker to address any emotional or community resource needs. Students will also have regular access to H.A.B.I.T services through H.A.B.I.T Volunteers who generously give their time to bring their animals to the school.

We will urge our local grocery stores and restaurants to reduce their reliance on single use plastic while offering information to the community about equally convenient alternatives. One of the activities we would like folks to participate in is a trash audit where we will tally the trash and find who is responsible for creating the waste found in our city. We will also educate people about starting their own kitchen compost while speaking at city hall meetings to propose adding compost bins to the community's trash collection. To learn more about our local waste facilities we will attend a tour of the current recycling facility and ask questions regarding composting. We plan to educate the public at our weekly farmers market in September about Food Literacy month (becoming aware of the effect our food has on our health, animals and the environment) and Hunger Month (awareness for the global hunger crisis) and come up with ways we can reduce our food waste and give back to those in need. Providing information such as 40% of food grown is wasted and that ironically we grow enough crops to feed 10-11 billion people which would solve world hunger, however, it is mostly fed to livestock, which leads to hazardous green house gas emissions. Offer some food for thought around food! Then we would like to wrap this all up by creating a community garden. Where the community can learn to grow their own food, and foster a stewardship of the land with provide many opportunities for connection, education and beautification.
