Our project will help to unite our community and will make the students feel more connected to their building. It would showcase the students engineering and design skills. Students will consider: How can we build sculptures that will stand up to elements while staying within the building constraints of the placement? Enduring Understandings Students understand structural integrity. Students understand the engineering design cycle. Essential Questions What materials can be used to withstand different environments? What are our building limitations? How much do our materials cost? How do we manipulate these materials? How do we keep our structures together?

An outdoor garden would be more sustainable than ones growing out of pots in a warm classroom. While my students have planted different vegetable seeds in pots and observed a bean plant grow with the fruition of one green bean, I would love to have parents and my students work together to plant, care and observe vegetation grow from little seeds or bulbs. Students would be able to compare and contrast which type of seed would grow best and how each type of plant needs different things to help it thrive, such as more sun, shade, water or extra love.

Through this project, we are looking to create sustainable living in the city of Camden through the distribution of free produce, in a city dubbed 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.

We began by mapping our community and discussing perceived problems within our community. We discovered that there are a lot of resources to connect humans to other humans and even humans to the environment, but not a whole lot to connect humans with other species of animals. In our weekly meetings, we often meditate on our feelings to cultivation compassion within and empathy for others. Almost every week we hear from each other how animals bring us such joy. When mapping we saw that a lot of animals in our community were farm animals- used for their product and not for their companionship. We would like to raise awareness that all animals have feelings and can be part of the club when it comes to sharing love and joy. While many of us have pets, it isn't often that we get to bring our pets everywhere with us- but why not? If our four-legged companions are so special to us, why not let them spread love as we do so in our community? So we would like to invite "Hero" our dog friend to the "Hero's Journey Club!" We will use the grant money to train him and get him certified as a therapy dog. Once that process is complete, we will begin bringing him into the community when we garden, explore nature trails, and volunteer at the various organizations in town. We will also include him in our weekly meetings and during our theatrical performances. A message we would like to convey is that the language of love translates across all perceived barriers: religion, ethnicity, culture, race, gender, and even species. We will know that campaign is successful when community members and organizations around town recognize the "Hero's Journey Club" and ask us to participate in their program or next event. We will document our findings with photos, video, and written articles or quotes. We aim to present and celebrate our success in early June during the Children's Flower Ceremony. We have a small play planned about "Communication and the Powerful Language of Love."
