We will use Philosophy for Children and Critical Thinking Skills to explore the causes of food poverty. We will speak to farmers and examined statistics looking at trends over time. We will examine our findings and see what action we can take locally in both school to address the problem.
Our project will provide food and fellowship to the homeless population of greater Fort Worth, Texas. We will be cooking the food on grills and then taking it downtown. We will set up a line for them to walk through and encourage them as they walk through. We will spend time with them as they are eating and afterwards to help build them up.
Reduce the amount of garbage in our garbage cans. We have been taking pictures of the amount of waste in all three cans each day at the end of lunch. We hope to see a reduction in amounts. We are still working on this project.
My project would help my family and the environment. I will do it by asking to put a Mulch trash can for lunch and it will be sold for money for our school.
We will put on a presentation for other classes in the school, to let them know what germs are, how easily those germs can be spread and what happens to our bodies when germs get inside. The students will then put on a hand washing demonstration to show others the proper way to get all the germs off our hands. We will also show what to do when we are sick to help protect our friends from getting those same germs into their bodies.
The students visiting the garden this week are in high school, so we want to test out our new Rainbow Ribbon Salad curriculum! This portion of the lesson will teach the value of “eating the rainbow” to get a variety of vitamins and nutrients in one’s diet. Our elevated curriculum will show older kids how to make healthier options in their everyday food choices. Specifically, they will be incorporating different plant parts on a home-made pizza as well as using all the colors of the rainbow to craft this delicious salad.
Our wish for this project is to increase awareness about the lack of shoes for many people in our community and with that awareness, hopefully there is a desire to partner with us to donate shoes and create an on-going dialogue about health, poverty and wellness.
The first part of the part has been sent to be peer reviewed by Metropolitan Community College Horticulture and University of Nebraska at Kearney Biology Department to see our rough draft using concrete to create an evaluated pond in the area. Once approved working with St Rosa to find live food fish in the area to stock the pond. We will then work on breed techniques we use in our state lab to breed tilapia to teach students at this college how we created this food network.
This Roots & Shoots Club will hold a fundraiser for Pacific House and also attend the fundraiser and collect donations and organize activities that occur during the night to aid the organization in being successful and continuing to work on their amazing mission.
