We will build the raised bed and prep the garden with compost materials, soil and manure. The girls and children in Roots and Shoots will plant seedlings for the gardens that they will care for in their own homes. We will dissect seeds and make observations under a dissecting scope. They will journal the various stages of the seed as it grows into an edible plant. Once the plants are mature enough we will add them to the garden where the children can continue to make observations and journal. Once the plants become well established we will offer lessons on making herbal teas and cooking with herbs and vegetables from the garden.

We will purchase planters that can be placed on the front steps of the homes at Children's Village. The students with Roots and Shoots will start some herbs from seeds for the children at Children's Village to use in these planters. We will also purchase some more mature plants for the planters. We will visit the Children's Village with supplies they can use to decorate their planters and help them plant. We will review proper plant care and make follow up visits to help the children care for the plants and to teach them how to use the edible plants in the kitchen.

Our first step was to raise money for the project. We did this by selling potted crocus plants on Women's Day. Now, we are waiting for the weather to improve so we can work with a local community group to clean up an empty block and make it clean, safe play area.
We believe in interdisciplinariety, that's why we are always working not only with biologists, but also with anthropologists, artists, actors, psychologists, lawyers, etc. We really take advantage of being at a University. We have offered conferences from all over the discplines, concerts, urban agriculture, creation of libraries for children, theatre to enviromental education, botanical workshops, art expositions, we've worked with scientists in order to create conservation plans. We just want one thing: inspire people and let them understand nature is beautiful!

We will create a map of the recreational and learning spaces around the area our school serves. Students will also map the recreational spaces they most frequently use. After that we will survey the school and surrounding community to see what types of activities we would like to see held and what type of space will be needed. Once we have that information, we will partner with the local government, religious and business organization to finalize a proposal and seek funding/support. Finally we will construct the spaces and create programing for them.

We spent several meeting times walking the school grounds with paper, clipboards, and pencils. We each sketched and labeled what we found. These individual maps will be combined into a comprehensive map of the school by a smaller group of members. We hope we will be able to display this in the school, and that it can be reproduced for use by the school and the community.
