Awesome! Looks like a great project. :-) My B is an earth girl herself, always talking about ways to SAVE our planet. I think schools are doing a good job of making kids aware of choices they make.

Herb garden. Maybe you'd do a future spring post on this? We've got some space here that's meant for gardening and I'm going to give it a shot this summer. But rabbits! We struggle with those and I'm not sure I'm up to the task. Have been reading a few articles/books on the topic but need to decide if I'm really going to do this or not. I've got basil on my mind, I really want to grow some herbs and have the kids get involved!

An herb garden is a GREAT way to start gardening with kids. Herbs are pretty easy to grow, and they're fragrant, and most can be nibbled right off the stem. T. loves to eat fresh mint and basil and L.'s even tried catnip!

I'll definitely put up a spring post on that. I wish we could do a vegetable garden, but our land is so shaded that there's just not a good spot for one.
