Lab will cultivate plants native to the mountain for both awareness and habitat restoration.The ultimate goal of our G.R.E.EN. Lab is to Grow a sustainable space, Reduce our carbon footprint, Educate ourselves, Enrich our curriculum, and Nourish our community.” -?Stephanie Murphy, Teacher

Our Story

We built a campus garden about ten years ago, and we haven’t had a program in place to maintain and effectively use the space. We currently have three garden beds on campus, and we?re going to build an additional twelve beds, new benches, and compost containers.? Homeroom teachers will have their own garden beds to connect science, organic nutrition, food history and the impact of food on our planet to their own curriculum. On October 27 (Dig Day), we’ll begin our journey to becoming a more connected, nutritionally educated Lipman community.
