Throughout the month of March, we implemented different activities such as Meatless Mondays, vegan food contests and water challenges. We planned these in our three Roots & Shoots groups and promoted the events throughout Green Month.

This club will first and foremost be a student-centered initiative. Students who are interested in health and hygiene issues at their school and in their community will come together to form a School Health Club, through which they will identify health risks and devise their own activities to address them. The second step will be to form partnerships with educational and health professionals to maximize experience, expertise, resources, and impact and to ensure sustainability. Finally, we will form partnerships with the community to maximize the impact of the club's activities.

We will create the garden in a 10x10m space allotted to us by the university. We have teamed up with Ryan Harb and Jono Neiger of Amhurst, MA to create a design that will meet our goals and thrive. A Garden Dream Team of students and faculty are in charge of design decisions. The Team is networking with outside groups such as the CT chapter of the National Organic Farmers Association, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Sodexo to gather support in forms of monetary contributions, as well as labor. Soil preparation is already underway, thanks to the effort of several faculty and students. Planting will begin in late spring. Plants will be donated or purchased with grant money. Garden maintenance should be minimal (if we design it right), but will be undertaken by volunteers, including the Dream Team.

Over the next few months we will prepare a garden space, plant and care for it in a respectful way. Eat and share the food we grow, while learning about the impact of our actions on the earth and her many creatures.

My project will encourage students, their families, and the community to develop healthier habits. Overweight children are more likely to be overweight adults. Successfully preventing or treating overweight in childhood may reduce the risk of adult overweight. This may help reduce the risk of heart disease and other diseases. Developing healthier habits also improve brain activity and learning! Help us, help the community!

Our project involves the construction of a community garden which can be accessed by families during the summer months. Students would utilize the garden during the school year to connect math, science, health, and social studies. We have students, teachers, parents, and class time to use to build our garden. An action plan has been started and we need to move forward with funding.

We will swap plants (and gardening/ Earth Day knowledge) with others in our community.

This project begins at the start of the school year. Students plant seedlings in our garden for Kale, Collard Greens, Various herbs, and tomatoes. Students care for the garden by weeding and watering when needed, harvesting the produce, and donating to Boca Helping Hands (a local food pantry in Boca Raton, FL). So far this year we have harvested 159 lbs for donation. This produce is either used in the preparation of meals for clients or used as part of the grocery bag program. In this program, clients are given a brown paper grocery bag full of nutritious food options.

Elm Street students will bring non perishable foods to donate.
