I want to start a school compost garden using Black Soldier Flies. They are a non nuisance fly that devour organics (including meat!). They can either be released or fed to chickens or fish as a high protein organic food source. This will reduce food waste from the cafeteria and help students get involved and engaged in community development, science, and nature.
First, we as a class will research living with less and brainstorm what this means. Making sure that there is student lead conversations so they are able to take ownership of this idea and carry its message to the surrounding community. Next we will break into groups and come up with initial ways to implement living with less and what steps we can take, encouraging students to think of the biggest impact decisions they can commit to and follow through as a conscience life agreement with the planet. Then we will set a goal, for example, we will reuse any item in our possession currently before discarding it to have another item ( toy, clothing,) to better appreciate and not be wasteful. Another idea maybe to fuel our bodies with as many local foods from local farmers that we can and to appreciate and not waste the foods we consume. We will celebrate each defined goal by our students and teachers on this site and celebrate our achievements, sharing them with our families,friends, and community. We will share our progress with you as we begin with each goal! Our students will begin discussions in two weeks when the summer program begins. We are very excited and can't wait to start!
My Roots & Shoots Club will promote being green at our school by spreading the good word of the impact of recycling and why we should be green. We will make flyers, announcements, talk to students and teachers and get student government/school officials involved.
Here in Argentina, there is a children's hospital that collects bottle for earning money.
Have someone at the trash/recycling/compost area after every lunch, telling people where the food or containers go. To have a group of people, everyday, take out the recycling or compost. We can use the knowledge of composting in our homes and potentially create a school garden that can grow food for the kitchen and use the compost to fertilize the soil.
we will replace the soil with good compost soil and plant non GMO seeds
