Roots & Shoots members reached out to local businesses asking to donate trees to be planted on school property.

We plan on cleaning up the tree beds and adding composting.We brainstormed ideas of how we could help our trees and community. We decided to invite the NYC parks department come and meet with our club to learn how to take care of our trees.

In the community garden, youth volunteers helped by putting wood chips around the fence, installing wooden plot barriers, and painting around the garden. They also helped with planting the new spring flowers.

We would like to purchase a tree or trees to plant in our schoolyard or locally. We would like our students to write an article for our local newspaper about the importance of trees. This article will also focus on deforestation and its negative impacts locally, nationally and globally. This article will also feature the endangered orangutan and hyacinth macaw, two species that depend on trees for survival. We also would like to educate our school and community about palm oil and how palm oil plantations are contributing to deforestation. Lastly, we'd like to introduce sustainable palm oil options or alternatives, in our foods and products, to our school and community.

We will collect water bottles and use them to make a vertical garden in the courtyard of my school. We will also assume full responsibility for maintaining and caring for the plants.

We will be learning about this during our weekly Roots & Shoots after school enrichment time. We will be using Project Learning Tree curriculum to understand more about our environment and the human impact that we have through our everyday actions. We will learn more about what plants and trees are around us and how they help us and how we can help them. We will investigate which plants and trees we need more of to balance our local ecosystem. We will be able to identify what plants and trees we currently have and, if needed, plant additional trees and plants.

We will place hanging succulent baskets in a high-profile location that needs sprucing up. They will be highly visible against a gray, empty wall.

If our Project is successful it will help everyone in our Valley to live more healthful lives. If we do not want the Inversion type climate that has overtaken the Wasatch Front then we, on the Wasatch Back need to start planting trees to off set the carbon footprint created by our fast growing population. Please plant at least one tree. I own 1/3rd of an acre and I have planted four trees with plenty of space for more.

We will be designing a succulent and herb garden that will be sustained by the AVID class. The volunteers will receive a Gardening 101 workshop on the process and why it is important to have a drought-friendly garden. We will bring succulents and herbs from a nursery that the volunteers will plant after cleaning out the dry plants and weeds and loosening the soil. Our volunteers will also install a stone walkway and small fence to supplement the aesthetic of the garden. Concurrent to the garden project, we will have volunteers cleaning the campus as part of the beautification portion of the day. The school will be able to benefit from having a community garden and the teachers will be able to incorporate curriculum and garden visits. At the end of our day of service, we will have fostered a sense of giving among our community members and raised awareness about the importance of sustainable garden practices.
