Action: Cooking! Each week we offer vegan alternatives and also ecological food. We research and experiment vegan alternatives, changing traditional recipes into healthier and vegan results! We find and make collaborations with people, organizations and minorities that are producing ecological food to be our suppliers.

This project would impact the students to clean up their surroundings and have knowledge on these rodenticides. We had Poison Free Malibu come to our school to have a lecture on this topic. We contacted the organization to make arrangements and held it in one of our school theaters.

In the middle of 2014-2015 school year, Riverfield Roots & Shoots students researched and planned how to build a small chicken coop. They planned how to sell the eggs, what supplies and food the chickens would need, along with keeping them safe from birds of prey. The students presented their plan to the administration and faculty. The project was approved and the chicken coop was built. The students then measured a plot of barnyard land for the area for the chickens to roam, dug all the post holes, and fenced it in for the chicken coop and hens.

We will build and maintain a raised bed pollinator garden on National Park property behind School without Walls Francis Stevens. We will plant native species plants common to this area that are known to be supportive of pollinator species and thrive in a sunny location. We must obtain a permit to plant on park property and are obligated to keep maintain the garden for at least 5 years. At that time we can apply again for another permit. This project begins with the building of the garden but is ongoing. We will remove invasives and trash and use the garden as a lesson to the local public of the importance of native plants and native animals including insects.

Our project will provide fresh, sustainable resources for our school community. It will also provide the necessary things animals need to survive in a habitat.

I will conduct classes teaching about the amazing Monarch Butterfly, including their life cycle, migration, dangers they face, ways they help us, such as their role as pollinators, and how we can help them. I will present a Powerpoint presentation that includes vivid images, maps, and statistics, and then the class participants will make milkweed and native flowering seed bombs as well as plant milkweed seeds in pots to be started indoors.

The project will consist of several people in my community working together to start a beehive. This process will take a significant amount of time spanning over several months. There is a 25 acre farm, where the owner has given us permission to make this possible. The owner of the farm owns a local restaurant, she will be able to support me and the crew in making this endeavor a reality. Over the next few weeks I plan on gathering as much research, supplies, and people as I can.

Our two projects will be carried out by youth throughout the spring and into future years. We hope that they will be carried out by future youth to impact their lives as well. The main idea of the pollinator project is to educate the community and help restore the population of pollinators in our community. This project is mainly located on the Marion Polk Food Share Youth Farm in Salem, Oregon which gives the kids a good amount of support and space to create their project. The first step in their process has been to plan the attraction of pollinators and the placement as to where this will be carried out. They spend much of their week dedicating free time to the development of this project and will soon begin to educate the public about the pollinators and their importance. The second project is just blooming. It has a very broad ideology of creating a permaculture garden free to youth volunteers and hungry members of the community as well as providing habitat and restoration for the ecology of the area. It is in the planning process and will soon be carried out in the two areas of Oregon partnering with different agencies in its development. This project is meant to take a large amount of time to build a foundation because we hope that it will survive for many years to come.

Our goal is to create a pollinator garden as an outdoor learning environment to educate our students and community about the importance of pollinators on our food supply while helping to increase the pollinator population.
