This project will make our school more attractive to students and visitors. The drought tolerant plants will save resources (water). We will use the money to purchase the plants (and other planting materials) and the students will do the work of planting and caring for this area.

One group( 4th grade) will construct a rain barrel, in which an ooze hose will water a near by butterfly garden/ vegetable garden, which will be planned and planted by another group (3rd grade). Any food raised will add organic choices to our cafeteria salad bar or be donated to the hungry. We will also petition administration for an Earth Day out of uniform Day to improve student's awareness. Fifth grade will build a compost pile bin, make a petition to our student government to try to acquire permission to place compost recycle bins in the cafeteria, and will be in charge of planning manual up keep . Second grade will educate Preschool classes, in interesting ways, about the importance of the above Recycle/reuse/reduce methods being done by the other grades.

We hope to be accepted and receive funds to plant plants in a very public area near a very traveled part of our campus that needs some beautification. The students are prepared to work with our maintenance crew and do the planting themselves.

Our project will engage at least 50 more volunteers in the community work our school does in and around the neighborhood. We will be able to do this by giving the participants the necessary protective wear that they will need for our projects so they do not have to provide it themselves.

Every season the Kawartha Park Nature Clean Up Crew organize various trash collecting projects. We focus mostly on roadside trash pickup and beach clean up. New garbage pops up daily it seems, and the beach is constantly being littered with blue styrofoam that washes up from the docks on the lake. Let's keep nature beautiful!! Interested in joining our crew? Know of an area of nature that needs some extra love? Join the fun for some hands on nature learning and give back to nature!

We will be taking a field trip to a local park, and will clean up all the trash and spread awareness. We also want to test the water to see of it is healthy and if not spread awareness.

We have already planned and collected research on what plants survive best in a drought. Now with our data we would like to plant a drought tolerant garden in front of our school for all to see and enjoy and create awareness.

The Tree Care + Mapping event will bring a community together for one purpose- the appreciation of the neighborhood urban forest. I organized the Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC) Facility Department, the LAVC Sustainability Department, the LAVC Associated Student Union, the Eco Advocates Club, TreePeople, Grant High School and Trader Joe's all in an effort to raise awareness of LAVC's campus sustainability. I reached out to TreePeople, a local tree organization, to help us complete the project effectively. TreePeople offered to provide tools and proper training for the Eco Advocates, a school club. The Eco Advocates club created publicity with flyers and posters which were posted across campus. Flyers were also posted around the neighborhood. The event was made into a Service Learning Program at LAVC. College students who participate at the event gain extra credit and service learning experience that could later be used on a resume. - See more at: https://www.rootsandshoots.org/project/community-tree-care-mapping#sthash.mIpvgIi5.dpuf
