Our project will harvest and save dropping fruit from community trees. Instead we will harvest all fruit and donate it to local shelters in our community. We will also be watering, pruning and mulching each tree, with hopes to give it a bust for the following season.

The Ashé Indie Festival will merge music, art and Earth in a two-day community festival. Taking place on Earth Day weekend, this celebration will feature over 50 live indie artists, art installations, performances, healthy food, and sustainability demonstrations along with the live planting of a garden. Our partners, including the FAMU Cooperative Extension, FAMU Student Community Garden and iGrow, will lead the planting initiative along with volunteers to maximize the collaboration of this community garden in the South side! A portion of the funds raised at this event and as well as the crops, once they have matured, will go to benefit non profit community gardens and families in underrepresented areas of Tallahassee!

What is so unique about GOALS is its non-competitive model: unlike any Special Olympics programs in Arizona, the purpose of GOALS is to provide a forum for positive social interaction between youth with and without intellectual disabilities. Each partnership is formed with the athlete in mind, and the partners continue to play together every event, creating meaningful friendships no other program has the capacity to do. Through our affiliation with Special Olympics International and partnerships with the Down Syndrome Network and Youth Service America, we have expanded our ability to create Unified soccer events twice a month. However, with the infamous Arizona summer quickly approaching, it is crucial that we move indoors to play soccer. Our next step as an organization is to introduce the athletes to an indoor version of soccer, a sport known as futsol.

We would like to purchase grow lights, as well as other garden necessities by early April for our indoor garden. The children will plant seedlings indoors under the grow lights and begin worm composting for Earth Day. As seedlings progress, the children will transplant the plants and flowers in late May and continue to grow the plants through to harvest in August and the fall months. With each harvest we will share some our bounty with a community food bank.

Collect food that would be thrown away because it's not 'salable' anymore (but still perfectly eatable!) And offer a free lunch to 700 students!

The project is starting a campus garden club to help build and maintain sustainable and organic courtyard gardens on campus. We hope to get as much of the school participating as possible. We will grow food and herbs for the cafeteria and provide opportunities for people of all ages and all creeds to get their hands dirty and learn about where their food comes from and why it's important. We hope to provide educational opportunities for the daycare center planting transplants and building bird and bug houses. Our club plans to plant bee and butterfly friendly flowers as well as hatch some butterflies to release into the gardens. We also hope to give students an opportunity to create art for the spaces out of 100% recycled items. We are also trying to use as little input as possible by building some of the raised beds out of reclaimed and recycled materials. We are currently in the process of planning the designs and finding donors to our cause. We already have one club, a few committees, and a compost donor all working on the project now and as far as I know everyone is on board and fairly excited.

Our Girl Scout Troop began with this school year Sept. 2016 with the knowledge that alone we can do great things but together we can do so much more. That in a community we are more than individual groups but rather one large force. We began with discovering our basic needs, and we found people in our community who could not meet those very basic needs. How could that be? So we come up with a plan on what we can do to help them and how to get that help to them at the most crucial times. We raised awareness to those in need in our own backyard. As leaders and parents we are immensely proud of their grass roots efforts.

We will offer the training in July for 4 Sundays. The Kindergarten Training Camp will provide families with children entering kindergarten in the fall of 2016, the opportunity to strengthen the skills necessary to achieve success in school. The domains that will be covered include: talking, singing, reading, writing and playing. The approaches to learning will focus on: cognitive and general knowledge, physical well-being and motor development, social-emotional development and language development. Group activities will include circle time (which will include story time), centers (which will offer the children the opportunity to work with hands-on materials that involve patterning, counting, writing, sorting and small motor activities. There will also be gross motor activities and a craft area. Each family that attends the various sessions will leave with a brand new book that is related to that week’s theme and some activities for the families to do at home. Some of the themes will be: Health and Wellness, Shapes, Going to School, Plants and Living Things, Counting and Money, and Pizza. (We are working on having the families join us for a free field trip to Pizza My Heart).
