The Problem

We wish to improve erosion around our school by better using rain water to help a garden thrive, then use the food to create composting and to help hungry people

Our Plan

One group( 4th grade) will construct a rain barrel, in which an ooze hose will water a near by butterfly garden/ vegetable garden, which will be planned and planted by another group (3rd grade). Any food raised will add organic choices to our cafeteria salad bar or be donated to the hungry. We will also petition administration for an Earth Day out of uniform Day to improve student's awareness. Fifth grade will build a compost pile bin, make a petition to our student government to try to acquire permission to place compost recycle bins in the cafeteria, and will be in charge of planning manual up keep . Second grade will educate Preschool classes, in interesting ways, about the importance of the above Recycle/reuse/reduce methods being done by the other grades.
