Through this project, we are looking to promote sustainable living in the city of Camden through the distribution of free produce, in a city labeled as a "food desert" during recent years. We are looking for cost effective and recyclable options to grow our produce, while educating members of the community about agriculture around the world, how different cultures depend on agriculture, how individuals in different environments face abuse, how climate change is affecting the world and how we can innovate change.

This project will engage students on a local environmental issue of their choice and together they will create a performance piece as an awareness campaign for the community.

In order to successfully reach our desired goal, much effort will have to be put forth! We will start by educating ourselves on the composting basics and school regulations on waste. After researching, we will communicate with appropriate school staff to educate them about the purpose of our project. Next, we intend on setting specified days dedicated to putting out collection buckets during lunch to assist and educate school peers on how to separate waste (compost,recycling,waste) in an interactive and compelling way to ensure full captivation and involvement in composting.

My project will give students the chance to prepare foods that they want to eat as well as introducing new foods to them. Each year, I walk with students to the farmers' market. This year, I want to give them a chance to select and buy produce to take back to school so that we can prepare interesting dishes. I am hoping to use a Roots and Shoots grant to purchase items like olive oil, vinegar, spices, pasta, and other food staples that will be used in the food preparation. Also, I plan to purchase a camp stove to prepare pasta, rice, and other basic foods for the kids to use in their dishes. We will prepare the food in our school garden. We have six picnic tables and there are some plants we can use to enhance the dishes like peppers, arugula, mint, anise, and more. Since the garden is thriving the pleasant outdoor setting is conducive to food preparation.

Our project will build a mini farm at our new school, focusing on organic growing techniques. We will incorporate composting from the school cafeteria to recycle waste and add nutrients to our garden. The K - 8 students will participate in and learn from garden activities and food from the gardens will be contributed to our local food bank.

Our project will help us provide and set up composting bins in various class rooms and other locations on campus. Our aim is to teach students the science behind composting and to get them excited about building their own compost so that the collection of left-overs is successful. We will collect bins from school areas on a weekly basis and set-up a designated compost area in our garden. Building and turning our compost pile will become an activity for our garden students to work on regularly! The compost we generate will help the fruits, vegetables, and other plans we grow in our garden to THRIVE!

This will be a long term project that our team of girls, with their family and friends, will be able to work on and complete one step at a time. Our plan is to assist other local groups in creating a vegetable garden for our local food pantry to provide fresh produce for the community.

For this project we will purchase a compost machine and have all of schools lunch remnants turned into nutrient rich compost for the garden. We will plant new flowers as well as fruits, berries, and vegetables. We will also be putting together a hydroponic garden. All of the food that is grown will be open to the public to be taken as needed. We will do all of this with the help of the Key Club community.
