Through this project, we are looking to promote sustainable living in the city of Camden through the distribution of free produce, in a city labeled as a "food desert" during recent years. We are looking for cost effective and recyclable options to grow our produce, while educating members of the community about agriculture around the world, how different cultures depend on agriculture, how individuals in different environments face abuse, how climate change is affecting the world and how we can innovate change.

As part of the community walk, students identified the following problem: too many milk crates were being disposed of and not being reused. They also saw the need for green spaces around the 6th grade classrooms. They decided to fix both problems by coming up with a brilliant idea. They will use the crates as planters for native plants as well as seating areas around the 6th grade classrooms. We will survey 6th grade students and teachers to find out how their attitude has changed in regards to the green space area around the 6th grade classrooms and reusing the crates.

We are a small troop of Girl Scouts that have partnered with the original Green Up Day founders to help build awareness to youth. We have reached out to other troops (both Girl Scout and Boy Scout) to help increase participation by encouraging them to participate in Green Up Day, but by also spreading the word around town. We have also partnered with he town to collect the bags of trash that we collect so that they will be properly disposed of and recycled. To date we have over 15 community groups and volunteer organizations participating in Green Up Day!

We will occupy a booth at the local Earth Day Festival. We will create a PLINKO game to draw young children and other guests to our booth. Once the guests play our game, they will also get an activity book that we have created. The activity book will have fun and educational activities about saving the environment, recycling, and about Earth Day. We will also purchase globe keychains and globe punch ball balloons to give away as prizes.

Our project will help us provide and set up composting bins in various class rooms and other locations on campus. Our aim is to teach students the science behind composting and to get them excited about building their own compost so that the collection of left-overs is successful. We will collect bins from school areas on a weekly basis and set-up a designated compost area in our garden. Building and turning our compost pile will become an activity for our garden students to work on regularly! The compost we generate will help the fruits, vegetables, and other plans we grow in our garden to THRIVE!

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.
