We will work towards raising awareness of our peers and community about the importance of eating healthy, growing our own food, preserving water and protecting the environment. The students will gain a new understanding about living in harmony with nature.

Our goal is for our students to be involved in solving a real world problem at our school. We will be doing STEM lessons to guide students through the design engineering process to solve our watering problem. We want to be able to water our gardens using recycled water through a pipeline system from our rain barrel. We are trying to maximize the amount of water collected from a rainfall as well as deliver the water to the gardens automatically.

We hope that by building bioswales in our school garden, we will be able to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff that goes into the sewers. This will help reduce combined sewer overflows, which pollutes the Gowanus Canal. We hope that our project will be one part of the Gowanus Canal clean up. We will build our bioswales around the sewers in our school's garden. We will divert water away from the sewer and use it to grow plants.

Our yearly invasion of Heal the Bay's outstanding Coastal Cleanup endeavor teaches our kids that you can make a difference and empowers them to take action on causes close to their heart, which is a Roots and Shoots mantra. We also use this early fall event to kick off our year-long campaign about environmental education. This day is an integral part of that.

The Gregory School’s Roots and Shoots project would reduce people in our school's use of plastic products such as plastic water bottle, zip lock bags, plastic silverware, plastic cups and so on. We will achieve these through doing video presentations about plastic pollution, giving incentives for students to not use or buy single-use plastic products and for restaurants/stores/etc. to not provide so many single-use plastic products (i.e. Starbucks).

Our project will educate in addition to reducing the use of plastic and litter on campus. It will also increase the students appreciation for nature. We will do this with the help of our club members, school staff, community residents and other organizations.

Through the use of a children's book we will illustrate how these plastics upset the oceans ecosystems and cause harm to all whom inhabit the ocean.

Students will learn the importance of utilizing alternative energy sources to generate electricity. First, they will read two books: "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" by William Kamkwamba, and "A Long Walk to Water: Based on a True Story" by Linda Sue Park. These two stories will transport students to two African nations where water conservation and energy production are essential for survival. Following their reading, students will explore alternative energy sources by creating miniature wind generators and solar cells. Next, students will devise a public program to promote water conservation and the use of alternative energy sources in our community. This program will include the creation and distribution of energy & water awareness stickers to younger students, as well as making and sharing an educational power point about their learning.
