We have planted 130 fruit trees and have showed the children how to use the fruit they grow to make jams and chutneys. We have planted a native wildflower garden and a butterfly and bee garden with specific flora that attracts local fauna such as honeybees and butterflies to flourish in our area. We have build an eco friendly greenhouse from single use plastic bottles. We have build a frog bog to provide a habitat for our native common frog and natterjack toad as they have suffered a lot of habitat loss.

We will pick up trash until the entire area is clean.

Today, we are going to go to the lake with trash bags and slowly move across the area, picking up any litter we see on the way. We will spend hopefully about an hour, but we will make sure that we pick up as much trash as possible. Our hope is that there is a visible difference after we are finished, and that the area looks generally cleaner. We are hoping that we will inspire the community to stop littering and to clean up the beautiful nature around them. We also want to make this area more generally enjoyable for the public.

My project is a simple sign with big bold letters. It is a reminder for people that there are people who care about the environment and maybe, just maybe, they will view the sign and change is made.

We will know if we are successful by our observations as the birds feed. We will be able to use this to address several of our first grade science standards. Our plan is to collect data on what birds appear, what type of food they prefer, and if different food attracts different birds.

Our compost bin will reduce the amount of organic waste disposed of improperly at this park, reduce the release of methane gas by facilitating proper decomposition, encourage people to become more aware of waste and recycling, and generate quality fertilizer that can be used by other visitors in their own gardens at home. After getting permission from the city, we will use lumber that we already have at home from previous projects and create a small, simple slatted compost bin in an unobtrusive location. The bin will be easily visible, but won't be an eyesore for visitors. Since the park is local, we will be able to visit frequently to add leaves and thicker materials to keep it from being soggy, and also to aerate the pile.
