We will start planting plants in our city and make all way beautiful. Our project starts now in spring and would complete in one to two months and after that we will take care for them.

We volunteer our time preserving habitats & working together with others to clean up community parks in Philadelphia for the Fairmount Park Conservancy.

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.

We plan to educate our community about why dog waste can be so harmful, and provide them with resources to make the process easier. We think that by reaching out to a local official and convincing them to spend time and resources on this issue, we can make the maximum impact. We have been researching the negative effects of dog waste, the occurrence of uncleaned up dog waste in our community, and how people can do this more effectively.

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.

To create the pollinator garden, we must first clean up the project site, a courtyard "reading garden" that is currently in disarray. University students will hold a series of educational lessons and activities in the kindergarten class at Pizzo Elementary, to explain the importance of pollinators and give the students a sense of ownership of their project. During one such activity, we will help the students choose plants that will be attractive to many native pollinators in Florida. In early spring, we will have a planting day and celebration with the students as we plant the garden together. Hands-on educational activities both in the classroom and more importantly in the garden will continue once the garden has been established. We have obtained funding from USF's College of Arts & Sciences, and intend to complete the creation of the pollinator garden in Spring 2015.

The project will improve the care for the plants within the school, perhaps increase the number of native plants and attract animals. Each class will adopt a particular area of campus to focus on in their care. The students will research the types of plants there are and what kind of care they need. The students will then care for the plants.

The project will not only beautify our school landscape but it will teach our students all the steps involved in designing, preparing, and planting native plants. The project will bring our community, parents, and students together in creating a drought tolerant garden.

Our Roots & Shoots groups coordinates an annual moth night each year. In 2013, we gathered in our backyard. In 2014, we collaborated with the National Park Service and gathered on the beach within the park boundaries. We will continue to take part each year and in doing so increase awareness and appreciation for these nocturnal pollinators.
