We will know our group is successful by increasing our rate of diversion each year as our school and local community groups. We also hope to do some community outreach this summer to help increase recycling in our community. This mini grant would be used to help the Green Team build a community recycling program. Last school year we installed a plastic bag collection station at our school. We hope to install more and 1 or 2 in the surrounding community.

I would like to purchase planters to hold the veggies; watermelon, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, okra and strawberries. The children and I will go to Lowes or Home Depot and purchase the plants, pots, dirt and fertilizer. Each child would choose and plant their plants individually with assistance. When the plant is matured and healthy the children can take the plants home with instructions to care for their plants.

We will meet at a local park (location TBD) and collect trash in bags to be removed. Basic safety guidelines will be discussed (as in items not to touch like syringes, broken glass and "personal" items). I'll provide a variety of bag sizes from contractor bags to plastic grocery bags for the littles, as well as kid-sized and adult-sized gloves.

My students will take a quick tour around the map they created and analyze what needs to be changed at their level to improve our community's environment. We actually discussed what they (students) can do, and many of them were thinking to clean the area and plant whenever they can.
