Together lets make it green

  2. 2. The problem<br />Our school is in the heart of the city. We have less plants and trees in our school campus and the neighborhood. We wanted to make the area greener.<br /> Planting more trees and plants purifies the air, gives shade and home to many birds and animals and makes the place beautiful. This would be a wonderful contribution to Mother Nature.<br />
  3. 3. WHAT COULD BE DONE?<br />We thought of getting a number of plants and tree saplings from a near by nursery and plant them in our campus and neighborhood.<br />Spread the message and make people aware of the necessity of more plants and trees.<br />Make sure that the saplings planted are taken care of well.<br />
  4. 4. We had to buy 40-50 plant/tree saplings, the pots, soil.<br />We convinced our school authorities of the need. The school agreed to give us the soil and pots.<br />
  5. 5. OUR PLAN<br />We came up with an idea- to run a food court in our unit. The food court would have different varieties of snacks, drinks and traditional food stuffs. <br />To ensure success we advertised for days. Most of the students and teachers agreed that they would have their breakfast at our food court on the day.<br />
  6. 6. We decided to make a good profit on the food stuffs sold and make use of it towards getting the plants and maintaining them.<br />Our plan was like this:<br />Stage one: get plants for school campus<br />Stage two: plants for our neighborhood<br />Stage three: plants for some schools/orphanage/old age homes in city.<br />
  7. 7. We planned a tree-buddy for each sapling planted. That is, a student will be responsible for taking care of the plant till he leaves the school. <br />We believe that trees also have emotions. The friend for the tree is supposed to watch his tree grow, make sure that its needs are met with. This way a new sense of attachment develops between the tree and the student.<br />
  8. 8. In the next stages, the project would be extended to neighborhood where volunteers would be given a chance to be a tree-buddy. In the stage three students/elderly people would become the tree-buddies. Thus, the tree-buddies learn to contribute for the planet.<br />The project would bring in like minded people who believe that every form of life on the planet is interconnected.<br />
  9. 9. IMPLEMENTATION<br />Stage one was implemented between Oct 7-14.<br />The food court was arranged and it was a big success. The profit was used to get the saplings.<br />We identified 36 volunteers who wished to become tree-buddies.<br />The saplings, pots and soil was brought. The planting was done on Oct.9th. <br />
  10. 10. The tree-buddies are working with enthusiasm to make sure that the saplings are taken care of.<br />Our stage two is expected to be done in the month of November. Other classes of our unit are coming up with ideas of organizing food courts, tuck shops, fun-fairs etc to arrange money for the next stage. We are also looking for volunteers outside the school who would like to be tree-buddies.<br />
