This project's goal is to educate the current group members of Humans for Animals on ethical and sustainable beekeeping practices. We visited the campus beekeeper Ed Popelka who gave us a tour of his farm and educated us on his practices and how he differs from the global commercial beekeeping businesses. Through this we will learn how bees benefit us and how we can all help the bees!

It is shown in studies that the way kids grow up affects the way they live the rest of their lives. When we see our community, we see ourselves in a way. We see the good parts and the bad parts. We see the kids playing in the parks, we see our cars, our homes, our schools, the buildings we work in. But, we also see the parts in us that we can improve on. One way we can improve the community is put in a garden. Our group of seven student plan to do a flower garden in the front of our school and put a vegetable garden in the back of the school. We think that putting this in could improve our school and the spirit that we have for it. One small change can make a big difference.

In this garden, we offer hands on science lessons where we talk about the dynamics of ecosystems and discuss the individual plants in the garden. The students can also come into the garden during lunch and other breaks to maintain the garden, water the plants, or just hang out.

My project will grow food indoors with the use of hydroponics. We will start by getting a growing medium and a bucket large enough to grow several plant at the same time. We will then need to use a water pump to move the water and nutrients around so every plant gets acquitted nutrients thus making it a more successful grow.

I plan on getting these trees to produce fruit for the community, and feed the community with healthy options. I have researched what trees would be able to produce the most fruit in New England. The top 5 trees I'd like to receive funding for is Meyer Lemons, Black Cherries, Apples, Navel Oranges, and Peaches. I have lined up on a Document when these fruits would be ready to harvest off of the trees. From my lay out, every month would be able to harvest at least one fruit.

Our project will remove debris from roadways, waterways, nature trails, schools, and train stations. We will accomplish this by clearing debris away after a heavy rain or flood, raking autumn leaves, removing graffiti from public buildings, bridges, or fences, and landscaping a public areas.

There are critical steps to an effective health outreach program and our project will educate the community and build positive relationships by exploring cultural community newspapers, establishing community events, and collaborating with volunteers in the target community.

I am going to buy trees at the store, using my money. Then I will put up posters and we will hold a Tree day, where everyone will get to plant a tree. It will be held yearly.

We have acquired a garden box and need to add liner and dirt and flower seeds. We already have three garden boxes devoted to edibles and a garden lab program. We teach over 150 kinder gardeners about growing foods from seeds, healthy dirt and beneficial garden bugs. This project would add a much needed landing pad for butterfly's in the kindergarten area and additional strengthen our program so that we can include teaching about butterfly habitat and life cycles.We would also be providing a much needed resting spot for insects traveling over our heavy paved school.
