DON'T MOW IT, GROW IT
This project is based on the idea of taking all “non-essential grass” at the schools and using it as garden space to grow vegetables. “Non-essential grass” is grass that does not need to be maintained for the safety of the students or essential for landscaping. This project ultimately can expand to include other public or private lands.
KIDS FEEDING KIDS
This project is based on the idea of schools in the Columbia County School District producing food for students to take home to their families, and ultimately producing enough for student consumption through the district Food Service Department.
BACKPACK FOR FOOD
Most local schools have a "BACKPACK FOR FOOD" program in which students go to a private area in the school and pick up a plain backpack that has been filled with food to take home for the weekend. On Monday, they return the empty backpack to be refilled and picked up again the next Friday.
