This project is designed to have nondisabled culinary students work as peers/mentors with students with autism. This project will allow students with autism to be more included in school life. The students with autism will be contributing directly to the culinary arts program and the culinary arts students will peer/mentor the herb growers as they work together to prepare simple meals. If all goes well, this idea will be expanded to include other ideas that the students may create to work together. In the long term, the students will run this project according to their own visions.
I will have Roots & Shoots members send in their Christmas lists to the Macy's event to increase the amount of money they send to Make A Wish Foundation, a nonprofit that organizes amazing experiences for children with life threatening medical conditions.

Our garden projects were started last year and have been making strides this academic year. Our garden bed for the cafeteria project has been delivered just this week. One of our balcony gardens is flourishing and we are in the works of fundraising and collecting donations of reusable containers and supplies for the remainder of our gardens, including a butterfly garden. A sub-committee of the MET's Environmental Committee to has been set up to over see the project.
The project will provide a safe space for our students with disabilities. The goal is for the students with disabilities to work collaboratively with the leadership class. Students will be allowed class time to work on the project though the school year all while building on their social skills!
Kids Need Support 2 Garden and Site Restoration will bring awareness, provide resources to children with many health disparities to combat their diseases, by cleaning the grounds, recycling, maintaining our gardens, painting, sanitizing the grounds for our Get Fit Program and Healing Gardens to succeed. We will take the food from the gardens, each child sits with the nutritionist to learn how to eat healthy and promote overall wellness. The children will cook the foods in the kitchen with a chef, who will teach them the purpose for gardening, living well and budgeting. The children will take foods to a local food pantry / shelter to combat malnutrition issues in the community. This will assist in our efforts to engage our community in Wellness programs, Awareness to Special Needs, and Building Stronger Communities overall.
We will talk about peace.
This project will be for the 2015/2016 school year with the hope that community members will want to keep it going in future years.
We will plant peppers, dill, squash, etc.
