First step will be to replenish the soil. We have already tested it for major nutrients: phosphorous, nitrogen, and potassium and found it to be seriously lacking in all three. In addition, as we took soil samples we did not find any insects or worms in the ground, it was that poor. After building the soil with organic materials, we will plant drought tolerant shrubs appropriate to our climate and the availability of water on our campus. These plants will eventually spread their roots systems and help keep the soil in place. Following the planting we will mulch the entire area to further combat the airborne dust that is such an environmental irritant to our students . Lastly we will create student maintenance teams to ensure the ongoing flourishing of the garden .
We will make a garden in a box. Using compost and reusable resources.
Students will conduct a sustainability audit of a local organization, undergo research and present recommendations on how to reduce the organization’s environmental impact.

We will sprout and plants avocado seeds with our environmental club on an ongoing basis.
We will build small prototype vertical wind turbines. Based on existing wind data we will choose various locations around the island to test the the power generation potential of the turbine(s). The data will be utilized to determine the plausibility of supplying homes, neighborhoods, or villages with the wind turbine generated power.
We will collect certain items to send back to Terracycle (for which we receive points). Kellogg's receipts will gain us points for tree-planting, as well. We will discuss further where our pennies will make the most positive impact.
