We have created a 10 week summer program that includes activities, speakers, hands on experiences and field trips to share resources with girls aged 13-16. Local community leaders and other individuals are working together with schools and churches to bridge the community gap between middle school and high school.

We would like to create a theatre type of space along with a garden area. We would like many different types of seating as well. We would love to start this summer or fall of 2019, so we can start learning in the fresh peaceful air as soon as possible!

Sts. Peter & Paul 5th & 6th graders will grow with aquaponics edible plants, including lettuce, herbs, and vegetables to transplant in a garden reserved for community produce. Students will harvest the produce and keep refrigerated until it can be arranged to give to local food pantry visitors in need of healthy foods.

First, my team and I found a speaker from a distinguished solar energy company to come and speak at our event. We then publicized the event a lot, and got great student participation!

I want to implement a compost bin in my High School's cafeteria. Not an actual big, smelly one, but one similar to a trash can where the food scraps inside of it could be transported to an actual compost bin. I am going to be starting an Environmental Club soon at my High School which would take the responsibility of maintaining the bin. I will be writing my principal urging him to let us execute this project for the better of our Earth.

Our campus is considered a living campus where food is cultivated and nutrition is a key element of the program. We believe in educating the whole child and teaching our students the importance of learning where your food comes from is a priority. Our GA 8th-grade students want to share that message by holding a community farmers market introducing our surrounding neighbors to a new parkway garden that we will plant around the school's southern perimeter for the community to have fresh whole fruits and vegetables. Students will clear the space and amend the soil during their GA classes. There will be one workday with community members to plant the gardens. On the day the gardens are introduced to the community, students will hold a community farmer market. We will place flyers on the doors of the neighbors directly surrounding our school site to invite them to the market.
