Have a look at the contents of this book as one which, though only 120 pages long, is filled with ideas on how to grow green with your family and community whilst doing well for the planet as a whole.http://www.greenphilanthropyforfamilies.org/about
If you have a gardening group in your area, simply give away and trade your plants, or give advice freely, you already know about the kindnesses of gardeners which enrich and broaden the quality of our relationships. You might like some of these ideas as ways of giving in a larger way:

    * Provide a micro agricultural or environmental loan of $25 to an entrepreneur anywhere in the world through Kiva.Org.
    * Give family and friends lots of "Green Hours," with the goals of nurturing respect for the Earth and the desire to sustain all life on it.
    * Adopt a local farm and purchase a crop-share for approximately $15 to $20 a week.
    * Plant a rainforest tree for $10.
    * Give a Solar Cooker Kit to a family housed in a refugee camp.


Many schools already have an ecology initiative going. But here, you many move the idea forward to a more global perspective for the children and teach them that there are ways to fix things and be positive as a curative against the negativity that surrounds them. (global warming, water shortages, agribusiness, oil spillages, species decline, animal rights) etc
