We will have all the kids in all the apartment complexes around us to plant gardens that will grow the tomatoes, green peppers, spinach, broccoli, lettuce, spices, carrots, strawberries, blue berries, raspberries and other food to make healthy pizza and fun salads, have them make and eat their foods, and then go deliver healthy pizza -- and garden planting kits -- to other kids in the neighborhoods who don't eat healthy or have their own gardens.

Through community workshops hosted on our campus, we will provide educational opportunities for community members to learn how to grow their own food and plant trees to help sequester carbon. We will focus on soil maintenance, permaculture design, and seasonal gardening. Activities will include, seed bomb making, community composting, integrated pest management techniques, and soil building techniques.

Students and community members will build and create 16 large raised beds located on the Rosemead High School grounds into a vegetable and herb garden. Students will work with the culinary arts teacher to expand their knowledge of utilizing the crops and integrate healthy cooking and eating in the school. Students will also distribute the overflow of produce to local homeless shelters and families in the community, making organic produce accessible for the neighborhood.

Our project will address needs both here at our school and at an orphanage in Haiti. The problem at our school is that our existing garden bed is in need of new soil, plants, and signage. In order for the students to design beds to be build in Haiti, we also need supplies for the students' prototypes. Supplies we will need include balsa wood, nails, and duct tape. The students will use these materials to design prototypes that the third grade teachers and I will build in Haiti at the orphanage with which we partnered.

This project will supply the men with the tools they need to get started on growing together a more healthy life.

This project will teach young men the proper way to plant, grow, and use the food as a means of a healthier lifestyle

Our project grows food hydroponically during the winter to help address the lack of healthy, geographically available, economically feasible food choices. The money for this project would be used to start vermifarms. We currently buy plant nutrient to feed our hydroponic systems during the winter and we throw away organic plant matter every week. I would like to use the organic plant waste to feed worms which would produce a highly concentrated fertilizer. This would eliminate our need to buy fertilizer as an input and reduce our waste. A vermifarm would also further demonstrate the full circle nature of food systems and life cycles and introduce heterotrophs into our food system, furthering our education as well.

Our group will engage youth and community members in cultivating fresh fruits and vegetables to give out to community members. We will use our hydroponic growing systems to grow and harvest the food.

Being that we are from a small town, our young males have nothing to do in this town. We are wanting to do group projects with our young males. We want to help our young guys transition from boys to men. We will do a pre-survey and a post survey to see how this group is impacted throughout this community project.

The RECO Club will begin growing food (suitable fruits and vegetables) as well as ornamentals in our school's rooftop greenhouse. We will try to develop diverse growing systems using aquaponics and soil/container gardening. Our school will look for funding to renovate the greenhouse for the longterm goal of adapting an urban agriculture curriculum for students with disabilities. In the meantime, students are looking to begin growing and caring for plants while learning about urban sustainability and biology. The RECO Club will also be taking on environmental campaigns and community service in NYC.
