    I like doing the ecochallenge with my school. I can see that my actions in my home or community can make a difference. Seeing the totals on the team board was good to see that as a school we did a big impact in just 2 weeks! I hope it doesn't stop.

    There can simply not be a future without pollinators!! The good news is, everyone can do something about it, and by doing it make their life more beautiful. Watch this Pollinator Pathway webinar on great and easy ways to modify our country and city landscapes to offer our pollinators rest and food!

    Action Track: Building Resilience Join a Local CSA
    Dependable fresh food, better prices (cutting out carbon-heavy supply chain and grocery stores), supporting local farmers and building resilient communities are just a few benefits of local food systems. Which of these benefits (or others not listed here) inspires you the most?

    Food access is one of the most inspiring challenge because in my point off view, it is one that can be most easily achieved and yields the most benefits: restore the Earth's biodiversity, build community, bring joy of eating good food and enjoying good health, of sharing knowledge and food, among many other benefits! During this challenge I have: started seedlings of native plants and vegetables, registered to a CSA, walked with community members building a Food Coop, and watched my town's Transition group's webinar on a garden share project, and more. Vive food self-sufficiency!!

    Exercising with others, inviting others on my walk

  • My mum is in the green dragons and she told me about the ecochallnge, I looked in the ecochallenge and I loved it, I am  going to tell you why I liked it. 1. if you choose the exercise challenge you do exercise helping your body making you strong 2. if you write about the actions that you have, other people will see one more action that is do homework and to get it you need to write.

    Food Watch a Documentary about Food Sovereignty
    How does food sovereignty address the complex transition from localized food systems to modern global food systems?

    People will have control of where they get their food. They can get their food from local farms and not from places far far away.  It helps the environment because if you go to your local farms to get your food then the ships that ship food won't use gas and cause pollution. And shipping costs more money. 

  • I like the ecochallenge, I want to do the ecochallenge again because I love the ecochallenge, and I want to say thanks to all the people who supported and took care of the ecochallenge
