Currently we are in the steps of developing the summit. Our projected dates are August 4-5, 2018. We are looking into rental facilities and grants to make this happen

To complete my project I'm going to get earth worms, release them into the school garden and the solid around the garden.This will help decompose dead organisms and help improve the quality of the soil. Over time they will reproduce and continue to help improve the ecosystem.

Take a trash can. Make holes throughout the trash can. Combine dry grass and twigs with organic waste. Mix it up. Wait. Collect rewards.

I will create a garden using milkweed and other native, indigenous plants to help the monarchs. Milkweed is the only plant that they can lay their eggs on and by using that plant I can encourage them to come here and create a safe spot for them. I will create the garden at my local elementary school with a group of fifth graders. They are in a class were they have to create a project and I will be there to help mentor them.

We have planted 130 fruit trees and have showed the children how to use the fruit they grow to make jams and chutneys. We have planted a native wildflower garden and a butterfly and bee garden with specific flora that attracts local fauna such as honeybees and butterflies to flourish in our area. We have build an eco friendly greenhouse from single use plastic bottles. We have build a frog bog to provide a habitat for our native common frog and natterjack toad as they have suffered a lot of habitat loss.

The "Botanical Garden" project will benefit the wildlife and community by adding more diversity of vegetation. This will give younger generations exposure to the importance of persevering and appreciating the environment. Also, this adds a group volunteer activity to the community that nurtures love within each other and the environment. Furthermore, the botanical garden will educate the public about environmental protection and discourages further construction or destruction of the land that is home to various species. This project we have decided to take on greatly influences people for various reasons. Primarily, the botanical garden adds more vegetation to the environment so that more fresh, clean oxygen can be released into the air for our use. Moreover, the addition of vegetation ensures more of the excessive harmful carbon dioxide emissions can be absorbed. Although the amount of change is small, this project is significant because it cultivates an outlook of growth and greener methods from the community. Additionally, the beautiful plants add aesthetic beauty to the community and nature has proven to lower depression and aid in pain relief (especially for elders). Not only does the project help people, more importantly it helps organisms around us. As more and more construction and destruction of vegetation occur, the more habitats of vital organisms are destroyed. By making an effort to add vegetation, we diversify the ecosystem and add potential habitats for organisms. Lastly, increased vegetation can serve as food for herbivores. Essentially, our wish for this project is to improve our neighborhood community by adding vegetation, preserve the vegetation that is already present and alert the public about environmental protection.

We will promote picking up trash in our community by posting fliers and we will also be going out to said parks and trails to pick up trash.

I think that aiding in wildlife inhabitability will positively affect the life that is distressed by human activity. The way I can do that is by adding bird houses and feeders in my backyard so that the birds that are affected by the cutting down of trees still have a home. Also, I can have a vine of ivy or flowers that attract bees.

We create a birdhouse with a kit from home depot that was ten dollars. We will hang it from a certain point of my backyard's roof or something else high enough for birds to be comfortable staying in.
