2021-2022 Indoor Greenhouse, C. Ian McLaren School, Black Diamond
Grade three students at C. Ian McLaren School are getting their hands dirty growing food while conserving energy this year. As part of a larger Sustainability Project, they’ll be creating an indoor greenhouse to grow starter plants for their neighboring high school’s Agricultural Program. Last year, students at Oilfields High School built an outdoor garden with funding from the Student Action Challenge. This year, elementary school students at C. Ian McLaren will germinate seedlings, tracking water and electricity costs as they go. Once the plants are large enough, the students will deliver the plants to the Oilfields High School’s Agricultural Program students. Talk about food for thought!
