Equipped with a state of the art greenhouse and a fully functioning state-certified tree nursery, the gardening programs at Greenspire demonstrate how human beings can have a positive impact on the natural environment.
Students manage the program to ensure it generates income for the school.
Goal: Carbon Negative
Our gardening program seeks to sequester more carbon dioxide from the environment than it releases.
To combat the environmental crisis, students implement projects that prevent or solve problems and reduce or eliminate negative consequences.
Protecting Threatened Species
By increasing biodiversity and restoring habitat, our program helps threatened local species of plants, insects, and animals.
Students engage the public and demonstrate how purposeful actions in our own backyards can make a difference.
Our student work impacts the landscape and has a lasting effect.
