Our project will provide sanctuary for local wildlife, including but not limited to birds and insects. While we have some plants already that attract critters, we would like to incorporate more native plantings, which will also allow this to be a low water use yard. Our plan is to remove the remaining sections of lawn, and replace them with native grasses and flowers that would attract the bird, insect, and other local animal populations, incorporating the new plantings with the ones already established.

We will find Monarch caterpillar eggs on the underside of milkweed leaves June to September, take the caterpillars home and raise them. Give caterpillars, information and instructions to anyone who seems interested. We will help spread milkweed seeds in the forgotten and unused spaces in the city.

Getting engaged: We will investigate what is a satellite, which materials are used in order to build one and why are the necessary for Earth sciences. Community mapping: We will interview people in our island and ask them how the felt when they saw the oil spill and how it affected their lives and we will write an article expressing their opinion. We will contact the environmental organization of Salamina (PERIVOS) in order to give us a talk about the environmental impact of the oil spill. Taking action: we will build our own satellites, using LEGO We Do 2.0 , we will write code in order to program to move around our inflated Earth. We will try to find data (pictures from the Copernicus / Sentinel satellites) in order to investigate how large was the oil split. Celebrate: We will present our work during the “Astronerds saving the Earth” classroom party.

We would benefit from a small set of binoculars for students to add to their toolkit, along with the microscopes and hand lenses we already have for close-up observations. This will allow students to learn to identify their natural neighbors, and get to know and love them.

We will continue to provide our garden to the members of Camden, so they can have access to produce without having to travel far. Our organization, Hopeworks, along with volunteers will continue to maintain and support the garden for the residents that want to grow their own food. We also donate all the extras to a local church where they hand it out during their food drives.

We are part of the organization, Hopeworks, a non-profit based in Camden, NJ. The city has had a difficult history but is home to many strong and resilient residents who look to improve their communities. One way that we help Camden is through our community garden, Esperanza Community Garden. The garden was created back in 2011 to help reduce the food scarcity issue in North Camden, which was due to the lack of grocery stores. Because many residents don’t have the kind of yard that would allow them to grow produce, those who wish to can use the plots in the garden to grow their own produce for free. They now have the opportunity to grow and collect free produce, without having to travel far. We also want to provide assistance in the process by helping with removing weeds and watering. Those who do not grow their own produce are still welcome to utilize the plants already in the garden to acquire produce during the warm months of the year. Whatever produce is left is donated to the church across the street for their weekly food drives. We want members of the community to feel welcome in this space.

We will make posters and flyers to get people to help out. Also, we're going to get sponsers to get even more people to join. The project will help rivers and the wildlife around in and around it.

During the winter we will raise funds, plan plant additions to our garden, and plan seating. In the spring we will plant more plants for pollinators. We will purchase and install seating.
