We would benefit from a small set of binoculars for students to add to their toolkit, along with the microscopes and hand lenses we already have for close-up observations. This will allow students to learn to identify their natural neighbors, and get to know and love them.

Students engage in monthly cooking classes that focus on seasonal and healthy recipes. The 5th graders were eager to reduce their carbon emissions and support local farmers after learning about how they can reduce their impact on the environment. With this grant money, we will supplement our grocery store produce with more local ingredients, calculating the miles saved for each ingredient.

In January, the children will study about ways to reuse, reduce, and recycle plastic. They will involve their families by providing them with reusable canvas bags to use when shopping. The children will each decorate one canvas bag, with symbols or pictures of nature items. The earth and some of its resources will be items suggested for the children to paint on their bags. When the bags are dry, the children will take them home with a note to parents explaining how the children have learned about reducing the use of plastic and asking them to keep this bag in their car to use when shopping at local stores.

We will continue to provide our garden to the members of Camden, so they can have access to produce without having to travel far. Our organization, Hopeworks, along with volunteers will continue to maintain and support the garden for the residents that want to grow their own food. We also donate all the extras to a local church where they hand it out during their food drives.

We are part of the organization, Hopeworks, a non-profit based in Camden, NJ. The city has had a difficult history but is home to many strong and resilient residents who look to improve their communities. One way that we help Camden is through our community garden, Esperanza Community Garden. The garden was created back in 2011 to help reduce the food scarcity issue in North Camden, which was due to the lack of grocery stores. Because many residents don’t have the kind of yard that would allow them to grow produce, those who wish to can use the plots in the garden to grow their own produce for free. They now have the opportunity to grow and collect free produce, without having to travel far. We also want to provide assistance in the process by helping with removing weeds and watering. Those who do not grow their own produce are still welcome to utilize the plants already in the garden to acquire produce during the warm months of the year. Whatever produce is left is donated to the church across the street for their weekly food drives. We want members of the community to feel welcome in this space.
