Design and Build housing structures for potbelly pigs of various sizes
We have a great need for shelter/housing structures for our herd of ~70 newly rescued potbelly pigs. We have rough examples of shelters that can be used as a starting point for your design, and would love if someone can build them shelter(s) to help keep our friends out of the cold and rain this winter. Structures can house single or multiple pigs, and can vary in size as you design.

Potbelly Pig Feeding Stations
Help us keep our herd of ~70 newly rescued potbelly pigs at a healthy weight by designing and building multiple feeding stations so that everyone can be fed (and medicated as needed) individually. We have an example of what we are looking for, but we could use a creative mind to help figure out the best way to do this and keep as much open space when not in use.

Sub-Irrigation Planter / Mobile Garden Boxes
Build mobile self-irrigating garden boxes using the attached documents below. I have provided a link to a google drive containing links to a 3D CAD drawing, cut sheets with BOMs, and a YouTube video on the building process. This is a great project to donate to anyone in need of a touch of nature. I donated my boxes to Clay Elementary School. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1xEHoPKbXbUNEpKHNLIpaS3GmR7Y8xYaY?usp=drive_link

Creek Clean Up
We are hoping one of your Scouts would want to plan and execute the clean up of thousands of golf balls from our creek in Tecolote Canyon. He would accept the responsibility for planning, getting and directing volunteers and following through for the successful clean up. This project would be an original, but then could continue with another Scout later on as this is a continual issue for our canyon's environment.
Funding Required: No
Deadline: None stated

UC Seed Library
Refurbishment and decoration of an wooden card catalog to be used for a seed library. Our library is in the early stages of creating a seed library, modeled after the one at Ocean Beach Library. We have an old card catalog which, once refurbished, will house seeds from a seed company and also house seeds brought back to us by community gardeners. Patrons can come and "borrow" seeds and bring some back after the growing season. We will also have educational programs so community gardeners can learn and make the most of their backyard gardening endeavors. Funding is negotiable, and shared expenses may be supported by our Friends group. If the scout is able to provide all funding, that is the icing on top of the cake and we won't say no!
Funding Required: Yes
Deadline: Spring 2024

SDIA Outdoor Synthetic Ice Rink Update
The SDIA Oilers Youth Hockey program has a small, outdoor synthetic ice rink that is in need of repairs. Indoor ice is limited and costly; the outdoor rink is a free option for youth hockey players seeking additional practice time at no cost. The netting and plexiglass need to be replaced as they protect participants, spectators, cars and surrounding property. While the sunshade serves its purpose, it could be updated. The youth hockey players can assist with fundraising to help offset costs of the project, if needed.
Funding Required: Yes
Deadline: Open but as soon as possible is preferred
