Students, teachers, and parents will clear out the rusty and broken tables and chairs behind the middle school modual and will recycle as much as possible then discard the rest. We will also paint the plywood shak that is now standing in the middle of the middle school nutrition area, scrub down the lunch tables, and we will plant some CA native flowers in our relaxation area. We will also install a recycling center in these location so the nasty plastic bottles are nolonger on owr grounds or in our landfields.

We already started a urban garden in our university and we have been doing discussion panels between students and promoting our job in schools . We will also be doing an agricultural fair on the last weekend of April where we have invited many schools and people from all over the country . Over there they would be able to know our plans and to listen to experts on what they can do to support our ideas .

One corner of the school yard will be dug up and filled with plants that will attract butterflies and insects. Another corner will be dug up and infused with aromatic plants. Interpretive signs will be hung to explain the nature of the specialized areas. A cob bench will be constructed with the help of our students, showing that chunks of demolition cement can be reused to make a new structure. A pump will be installed, connected to a small solar panel, making a fountain work. The water pressure will change when the angle of the panel is changed, an act that can be done by our students. Finally, a structure will be built for climbing, using recycled materials. We will be collaborating with university architecture students. This will give them an opportunity to research and construct a structure, as they follow their passion to become architects. We hope to have much of the project completed by the end of the school year. But it is more realistic to say that it will be completed by December 2015.

Our school-based Roots & Shoots group has chosen to create an up-cycled vertical, edible garden in the courtyard of the kindergarten classroom on our school campus. We started this project by creating vertical garden prototypes out of reclaimed wood pallets. We built 4-foot tall wooden frames to help us experiment with possibilities for creating a large-scale vertical, edible garden that is suspended from a wall in an open-air courtyard. After coming up with a successful design for suspending the garden, we collected hundreds of plastic smartwater bottles and turned them into containers for soil and plants. We cut openings in the bottles, and poked holes for drainage and to guide recycled mason line through the bottles to suspend them. We will able suspend eight water bottles in each column on the courtyard wall, with seven columns in total. When we have finished constructing the wall, we will fill each both with soil and organic seedlings of vegetables and herbs.

Our Roots & Shoots team members will team up with university students traveling from four universities in and out of state for spring break to work with Habitat for Humanity. We will be working on green spaces and making aesthetic improvements to owner occupied homes in a low income area and will prepare lots of land for a few new homes that Habitat will soon build.

Every April a speaker will be invited to present at the assembly. Included at the assembly maybe students singing songs about environmental issues and a "recycle fashion show" where a queen and king of recycling will be crowned. We will also recognize any students and adults that have volunteered extra time to help our "green" efforts.
