We are part of the organization, Hopeworks, a non-profit based in Camden, NJ. The city has had a difficult history but is home to many strong and resilient residents who look to improve their communities. One way that we help Camden is through our community garden, Esperanza Community Garden. The garden was created back in 2011 to help reduce the food scarcity issue in North Camden, which was due to the lack of grocery stores. Because many residents don’t have the kind of yard that would allow them to grow produce, those who wish to can use the plots in the garden to grow their own produce for free. They now have the opportunity to grow and collect free produce, without having to travel far. We also want to provide assistance in the process by helping with removing weeds and watering. Those who do not grow their own produce are still welcome to utilize the plants already in the garden to acquire produce during the warm months of the year. Whatever produce is left is donated to the church across the street for their weekly food drives. We want members of the community to feel welcome in this space.

Where will the sewage go after the pipes are shutdown you ask? Well we'll sell it to farmers who need fertilizer and give the rest to a purification facility, we'll also use dredgers to clean litter and plastic and introduce a £50 fine if caught throwing litter in the river then we will introduce plants and fish into the river.

At the beginning of 2017, with the help of Soroptimists International Voorne-Putten (NL), we constructed basic sanitary facilities (ventilated pit latrines) in rural southeastern Burkina Faso. The people of the village of Loanga and the adjacent hamlet Tanéré have now constructed three 'VIP' buildings, and a select group of women is in charge of keeping the buildings clean, and of sharing good hygiene practices. We aim to expand the project at different locations within the same region (Bissaland), as well as in one of Ouagadougou's townships.

A group of women will receive a training to plant local trees and grow nutritive vegetables. They will learn how to prepare seedbeds and how to transplant seedlings. They will have a plot of land where they can farm throughout the year. We will start with a small plot and a select group of women first, and the whole project will be coordinated and closely monitored by one of the R&S members, a resident of this township.

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.

These herbs will be grown for their health or culinary benefits, through research gathered by the class. The students will be required to be fiscally responsible of the project; buying supplies within budget and selling potted, dried, and fresh herbs at the farmer's market for a profit.

The 16 students will work with our Technology teacher and students to measure for, design, cut, construct, and install the shelving that was not included in the greenhouse. Once the shelves are installed, the students will begin growing plants and performing inquiry activities throughout this time. Once matured, flowering plants will be transferred into our Pollinator Garden, while vegetables will be used to create healthy recipes tbaf we will prepare in the Home Economies kitchen.
