The Problem

Our wish for this project is to educate the children and young adults in our community of East Harlem/El Barrio about how our actions can benefit the earth. We want the children to become excited about gardening. Our project will help the youth of our community decrease the negative effects of pollution and global warming caused by our neighborhood. Our garden will also help add to the attractiveness and beauty of our community. We hope that the project will encourage the youth in our community to become more involved in preserving and giving back to the environment. One plant at a time, the community children of East Harlem will help save and love our environment!

Our Plan

With funding from Roots and Shoots and parents, our project will consists of each child having a plant named after them that they are responsible for. Each day for 30 minutes to an hour, the children will go to the garden in the backyard of our foundation with chaperones to care and water their plants. Incentives such as extra play time and awards like medals and trophies will encourage the children to plant more plants and even to take care of plants that require extra management. This project will go on throughout the spring and summer and is repeated annually.
