We would like to develop a series of presentations around environmental justice issues, such as climate change, alternative energy, and food justice. We feel that our community is not as knowledgeable about these serious issues.

The DMS Green Team will build a compost bin, begin collecting food waste from the cafeteria, place the food waste (along with dried leaves and grass) in the bin, work the piles of waste until it becomes compost, and then apply the compost to our vegetable and native plant gardens. Students will track the amount of food waste coming from the cafeteria to the compost bin, measure the volume and temperature during the composting process, then be a part of applying the compost to the gardens.

We will launch a true RRR program in our school and community. We will conduct a year long campaign to reduce waste in our school and carry that to our homes and local businesses.

We will work with local shelters raising support and helping clear the shelters of housed animals. We will work on an informational campaign to raise awareness about animal cruelty stray animals, and help new pet families find low cost vet care for their new family members.

We will do a fall and spring drive to gather clothing, food, and finances to help the homeless shelters and families in our area. Our Fall drive will focus on collecting warm clothing for the homeless along with other needs. The Spring drive will focus on providing cooler clothing for the homeless along with other supplies.

We plan to educate 150-175 people who will be invited to attend the nutrition seminars at the after school program. This will include parents, staff and students, many who do not qualify for assistance. Our success will be 150 bags distributed to serve an estimated 300-325 people.

We will be measuring the amount of compost that is produced every week and track the usage of compost over time. We also hope to survey students on whether they actually use the composting bins that we have implemented. Finally, as a last measure, we will do soil testing through our AP Environmental Science class to see whether the composting regions are more nutrient rich.

The Gladstone Indian Education students will participate by visiting our own Lake Michigan as well as the nearby rivers and Bay. They will sit for a half hour and journal every animal and insect that comes to the water to drink. They also will have to look up the message that each of these animals bring to them. Since in the Native Tradition, it is said that each animal is a messenger and carry a message for those who come across it's path. Then, the students have to share their findings with their classroom, parents, and teachers. For their parents, this is a very important piece of information, since many of those parents, grandparents and great grandparents lost the traditions during the boarding school era. This is a message that needs to be delivered through our messengers, for the messengers. Water is Life. Take care of our precious resource. Chi-Miigwetch (Big-Thank You)
