We’ll set up workshops on creating backyard gardens, composting, and building rainwater collection systems. We’ll teach using our school/community garden (not set up yet) and set up community fridges that will be stocked with locally-sourced produce (from our shared and personal gardens).

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
