My project will provide food for the poor and people in need. We will do this by planting many vegetables at a garden plot and picking them daily. After we get enough vegetables we will deliver them to the people who need them.

Our Arroyo IB Ambassadors plan and run stations designed to showcase the beauty of our planet, how humans impact the Earth when using resources, and how we can all take actions big and small to made a positive difference. Students look at flowers up close under microscopes; students learn about the recycle numbers on plastic containers; students sort trash for: recycling, compost, and landfill; students plant a seed to take home; students make statements of action to share with the community.
Starting off, the students will work in teams to highlight the issue of deforestation and specific effects on local communities--especially farmers, students, and the environment. Then, after drafting papers, they will make presentations among their peers and finally to their community. They will then plan a day of community gathering where they will make their presentations to community leaders and their families and plant tree saplings around their targeted area of their school and a local forest.

We are inviting all of the families in our homsechool cooperative and the members of the Boys and Girls Club where we meet weekly to add to our Roots and Shoots "Making a Difference" chain. It is Roots and Shoots goal to do things that support our human community, the animal community and the environment. Each time anyone participates in an activity that accomplishes one of those goals we are going to invite them to add it to our chain. It is a good way to see how every individual makes a difference. We are going to display the completed chain at our showcase at the end of this semester.

Our garden will replace a patch of grass that consumes thousands of gallons of water every month. This is crucial in Southern California, where we currently have an unprecedented drought. According to our calculations, our garden will only need half the water the lawn drinks up. After scouting this location with local gardening experts and project leaders, we will draw up a layout for the garden, i.e. fences, beds, irrigation, trees, ideal plant layout, etc. We will then acquire the necessary things we need to plant. These include seeds, small plants, lumber, construction materials, and tools. We will try to get as many of these as we can donated by local businesses. Meanwhile, we will be spreading the word and recruiting as many volunteers as we can to help us. The more students we get involved at our school, the more successful our garden will be. We will also target teachers, parents, and community members and ask them to help. This will all be finished by late February. Then, in March, we PLANT! After planting, we will maintain a healthy base of support to ensure the success of our garden in the future. We will host events like gardening days and garden parties to raise awareness about causes like hunger and environmental issues. Our garden will continue to be a beacon for philanthropy and environmental stewardship in our community.
We are supporting agricultural project of community-based members to help them increase their yields and thus improving their income
