My project will be started by taking cuttings of native plants already present in my neighborhood, such as Wild Tamarind, Gumbo Limbo, and Fire Bush. I will then plant them around my school with the help of the rest of Ecology Club. I will add to our thriving native garden and create a "mini-forest" that will help increment the amounts of native insects, birds, and other small animals.

Our project will make our school prettier and a nicer place to be. We will accomplish this by planting flowers, bushes, and some trees in strategic places around our school.

16 of our classrooms will each be assigned a garden bed (or a portion of a garden bed) as well as a part of the outdoor learning space to cultivate and maintain. Classes will work during their scheduled time on a weekly basis. Classes will tie curriculum and Missouri State Learning Standards to their work in the garden, bringing together language arts, math, science, and social studies to their experiences in the outdoor classroom.

We will plant herbs and vegetable seeds. Once the seeds sprout and are big enough we will clear the plot for a garden and plant the seedlings. The children will record their observations about the garden in their journals. The class will care for the garden through the remainder of the semester and then we will turn it over to the Boys and Girls Club.

Students in Grades 5 and 6 at Costa Verde International School will create a trash campaign to bring awareness around keeping common areas of the local town clean. Project will include working together with Entre Amigos, a local non-profit, to design and fabricate an up-cycled product that will be sold at Friday Markets (other venues to be determined) to raise funds. The proceeds from this product will go to helping develop trash collection stations within the school, and if the city allows other areas as well.

Kindergarten Students at Costa Verde International School will adopt the local community garden, plant new plants and trees, and become the custodians for the garden for years to come.

We are going to identify several native butterfly species and then research the types of plants they eat. Then we are going to look up what those plants need to grow and be healthy and plant them around our backyard!

For this project, we will first need to get land somewhere that is convenient and accessible to all people. We may have to write a letter to the government to provide us with this piece of land, and raise donations for other expenses. After that, for a whole day or more, we will welcome members of the community to help prepare and plant the park. After everything has grown- which should take no more than 3 months-, the park will be open to the public. To maintain the park, it will be divided into different sections and each section will be put up for adoption, so the park will be run by the community. We will also employ the local unemployed people in the community to help maintain the park.

Each class in our school will take turns cleaning and preparing the ground, planting the seeds, weeding the garden, and watering the garden.
