Our Group, BHS Go Green, working with the Village to rake the yards of community members. Each year, the Village gets rid of lawn debris, leaves and branches, but we use so many bags and it's a hassle for some of our elderly community members.
Plan of Action
BHS Go Green has 40+ student members who have organized themselves into raking teams. We are competing with each other to see which group can rake the most yards in one weekend. We have advertised the Rake-A-Thon in the paper and on the school website and are currently taking names and addresses of people who want us to rake their lawns. We hope to rake the lawns of half of the people in town (about 150 houses) and are working for a small donation to our club. We have weekly meetings to make sure we are organized and ready for however many houses we end up working on the weekend of Novemeber 8 and 9. The Village knows what we are doing and is ready for leaf and lawn debris removal for the following week.
