As People of Action implementing simple ideas is an excellent way for your club to take meaningful action. 

School Gardens


Idea Listing

Form a collaborative relationship with a local school and help establish a garden patch that teachers can engage with theoir students and inspire Environmental Sustainability activities.

By providing environmental awareness it may lead to inspiring children to taking environmental action as well as expose them to Rotary and its serve above self values.

Gardens could follow different themes such as the following project examples:  Pollination Gardens, Edible Gardens ,  Sensory Gardens or beautification projects.

School gardens can also be excellent International Projects

Rotary Clubs could offer to supply seeds and potting mix for the students to grow and take seedlings home as a Mother’s Day gift.  It’s a very affordable Club project that could attract sponsorship.

There may be branding opportunities as per the Corowa NSW example.

By getting a team fron your club out regularly to pick up litter you’ll be doing your bit to keep litter under control. You may even be able to plant pollination friendly plants to help create a pollinatort pathway. Or plant other indigenous plants that help sequester carbon and build healthy soils.

Colour Your World, District 9800, Victoria, Australia

In response to the pandemic and the current restrictions in Melbourne, the District 9800 Environmental Sustainability Committee was challenged to come up with an activity that would make a positive contribution to the environment, engage members and maintain their safety while in lock down. The concept of ‘Colour your World’ aims to encourage members collectively to contribute to biodiversity and support pollinators, by growing flowering plants in their garden.
