    Going Green in the Greenhouse

    We have a fully functional greenhouse that we want to integrate into our science classes and greenhouse club to teach, hands on, botany and horticulture. The campaign would include start up costs of resources to begin planting. We also need cleaning and set up supplies to be able to make this project a reality for our students.
