The following students presented to the faculty about their ECO Projects.
Megan Batchelder talked about her $2,000 grant from Central Vermont Solid Waste Management District to put in a refillable water station, and a sorting station for trash and compostable in the cafeteria.
Claire Cook and Natalie Barton, along with Eliza Goodell are halfway through completing the TRY Program (Teens Reaching Youth) which is sponsored by UVM Extension and VEEP. They have taught 6 lessons on wind and solar energy to Andrea Dennis, Kindergartners and First graders. These students attended a free conference back in November and found out about this free opportunity for training and received about $400.00 worth of materials to teach their lessons with.
Natalie Barton shared about her ECO Tree Project which will start in 2016. Natalie wrote a grant for $500.00 and she is still waiting to hear whether she got the money, but in the meantime, Phyllis Shea wrote a grant for $3,700 to help Natalie's project along. The Tree Project will have first graders from BES and NES plant edible and medicinal trees/bushes around the OHS school yard with upper class students. Pictures will be taken, and a connection to OHS will be formed with our youngest students in our district. By the time the students get here in seventh grade, fruit will be able to be harvested, and nutritional concoctions for health can be made.
