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.

Advocate for special needs while completing recreational outdoor activities such as hiking, cleaning the parks, fishing, etc. Focusing on resiliency, awareness and natural health resources for special needs children, chronically ill and disadvantaged youth. Our organization will approach the problem of vandalism in the parks, littering and the lack of respect for nature by painting over graffiti areas, cleaning the parks, planting healing gardens and flower beds with fencing to protect the beauty of nature and life within. We work closely with the naturalist and share information on wildlife protection and earth preservation tips. Children between the ages of 5 - 18 will work weekly to maintain the gardens. “This grant will make it possible for 100 city kids, many of which are low-­‐income, to explore all of their sense in the gardens. From touching worms, gathering fresh produce, to smelling lemon verbena to tasting the finished product of their labor. There will be 10 classes throughout the year, which will cover the following topics: • Seed starting • Planning a garden • Planting • Harvesting • Composting This spring we will work on outreach to parents, partner organizations, and teachers living in the neighborhood through newsletters, social media, and local churches to recruit volunteers.” Being a keeper of our brother/sister involves being a keeper of the all life and earth. We will heal together.
