Our group is partnering with members of the Cherokee Ranch and Castle Foundation to plan community service projects we can help them with, and science and cultural education efforts our students can benefit from. The Ranch is 3400 acres of protected, native habitat directly South of Metro Denver. It is bounded by several other protected spaces which total some 14,000 acres of natural space virtually surrounded by the sprawl of the metro area. We have plans to study the native species, help improve the grounds. We hope to develop educational partnerships with investigating scientists and work on documentation. It is our goal to figure out how to educate the surrounding community on the importance of continuing to protect such a beautiful space. In the short run we aim to build bat houses to install in the spring and work on waste management and energy sustainability projects.

My project is simply to create awareness among all individuals that can spread the word on all issues regarding our home at large (Earth) and to bind together to create a strong community based on teaming together to do the necessary steps to accomplish the most eco friendly way of living, by watching what you eat, no meat or packaged foods need to be cut down or completely diminished. How many plants we grow a month, my aim is to grow one plant a month or more and to encourage others to want to do the same. To find ways of slowing down our carbon footprint and air pollution by not using cars as often and using solar power if we can. Also how we teach our children and our connectedness to the planet, and to teach our children that the world is at their feet and every footprint counts. Not only will the next generation be raised as aware loved kind and caring individuals but at the same time they will be the next leaders in a movement that is imperative the health and wellbeing of all living things.

I would like to continue to work with a local youth program (ARTS-Us) that runs STEM/arts programming year-round. I would like to lead workshops that teach youth about STEM and how it relates to food justice through hands-on learning. I would like to buy seeds to grow food that we will use to cook meals with the youth so that they can see the full process of natural foods (from the seed to what you put in your mouth)!

Our students have worked with several organizations to harvest seeds from flowering plants that are native to NYC and are in the process of overwintering and seeding these seeds so they are ready to be transplanted into the garden. We will transplant the native flowering plants in early spring and care for and maintain the garden throughout the spring.

We are builing a learning garden and creating curriculum for all subjects to get more of our community outside and learning.

Through the Common Ground program students will learn compassionate land management skills at the Crane Trust Nature Center. These students will be removing invasive young eastern red cedar trees from native prairie habitat, they will extend the present hiking trail system by developing a new trail and they will be creating a new viewing blind where they and the public can observe sandhill cranes and other wildlife along the Platte River.

We will grow food in crates. Each family takes home a themed sustainable food system. For example. A themed pizza garden may include tomatoes, garlic, basil, oregano, onions etc.

The RECO club is a student green-club that volunteers to clean up waste from our natural areas as well as greening parts of the city in collaboration with NYC Parks Department by planting trees or working on park clean-up. The club is also affiliated with NYC's Office of Sustainability's Zero Waste Schools. We have a campaign to rescue some trash found within our school to make art projects from it (bracelets out of plastic bags, sculptures out of bottles, etc.) as well as push-in into classrooms to proactively teach other students on how to properly recycle. The RECO Club also takes trips to natural areas or facilities where innovation is taking place so that our urban youth can experience 'nature' or what people are doing around the city to promote sustainability.
