Our project now has 6 planters with 10 different fruits and vegetables that we expect to give a great harvest. The seedlings are sprouting very well. The students will continue to learn the process of each type of food, follow a timeline for the growth and care, that will lead to learning salesmanship of the harvest. We will then recycle the process with fruits and vegetables for the type of season and continue the process over and over with other students in the school with the goal of reaching them all. We will also be seeking investors for the crops.

We will create skits around environmental topics and go around to different youth groups and present them. We will also help them to create skits and post on social media for bigger impact.

In front of my school we have a 20 foot by 30 foot piece of grass that is not being used for anything. We also have a fig tree and a plum tree with some bulbs that could use some company. I want my school to be attractive to when parents come in and see how much pride we take in the outside appearance and the community around. There are a lot of urban farmers also in the neighborhood and I would like to purchase native bee food plants to attract more bees and help both ours and their plants.

We will make a movie for all students of our school telling them what we do (collecting mobile phones), why we do it (rescue apes) and how everybody can take part to rescue nature. We made research about: -life and biology of chimpanzees -the deforestation of the rainforest in africa and its consequences for the apes and also the whole planet -the resources used in mobile phones (50 different components are used for the production of mobile phones e.g. Tangle, Lithium..) -research about ecologically friendly mobile phones ("the Fair-Phone", eco-friendly usage of mobile phones) - research about the usage of mobile phones in our school - waste management in general (e.g. why is it important to separate the waste and to bring old mobile phones back to the production cycle) We named our project "family first" because our next close relatives in the animal kingdom are chimpanzees.

My plan is simple, to take the concrete block outside, and transform it into a lush green garden where students can eat lunch, play, and relax. Firstly, I am working on raising the money to complete this project. I am creating water bottle drives, reaching out for donations, and speaking with local businesses. Once the money needed for this project is aquired the concrete block I meantioned before will have flowers, grasses, and bushes, all of which will contribute to a more positive experience for the students in my school. Nature has the power to connect students with Literature, Science, and History. It improves performance and concentration in school because being in nature increases dopamine levels. It gives students a place to relax and connect with their peers. IT encourages excersize and heealthy living. It helps to improve childrens mental health. It keeps kids out of trouble. Thus, if this project is finished to completion, I will leave behind a space of healthy recreation and peace for the future students who attend the CREC Greater Hartford Academy of the ARTs.

After community mapping, it was uncovered how the space directly behind our school needs attention and care. Recently, the amount of trash and pet waste on the path has dramatically increased and is making it difficult and unpleasant for bike riders, hikers and runners to utilize. The students who participate in the K-Kids Program will write up a proposal to the local government advocating for clean-up and asking permission for placement of waste containers. In addition, the club will purchase and instal materials, create posters in both Spanish and English to educate the community around the needs of keeping the trail clean, and maintaining the Pet Waste Station.
