The nations environmental future is rapidly changing. Consuming local food, practicing sustainable farming, and producing clean, renewable energy are all necessary tools of environmental stewardship and important resources for green jobs. However, local teachers explain that these topics are rarely covered in the public-school curriculum, so many students are unaware of the practices currently underway to address climate change and health issues.
If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, then The Abundance Foundation can fund a scholarship for one underserved youth to attend a five-day Sustainability Summer Camp. There, teachers and experts guide students aged 1015 through lessons about sustainable living and renewable energy, including solar double cropping, water catchment, and biodiesel production. Every day, students participate in threefive workshops, then prepare snacks from local produce, and finish with playtime and a reflection session. Each additional $300 raised will fund a summer-camp scholarship for another youth.
To celebrate the launch of Groupon Grassroots, Groupon will provide a $1,000 kickoff grant to this campaign. You can follow the progress of this and other Grassroots campaigns at the Groupon Grassroots website.
The Abundance Foundation was born from the collaboration of two co-opsChatham Marketplace and Piedmont Biofuels. They started the organization to carry out specific sustainability projects, all while teaching residents about local food, renewable energy, and community. The foundation's first project brought warm water to students in an elementary school through the use of solar power. Aiming to make all of its activities fun and engaging, it now conducts children's sustainability and energy tours that teach youth where their food and energy come from. Its do-it-yourself sustainability workshops teach adults about eco-projects, including how to make cheese, soap, and bread from scratch, and how to practice organic gardening or beekeeping.
