This is my first year teaching Green Panthers. I have a BS in Environmental Sciences and a Masters in Foresty. I love being a part of nature and doing my best to preserve it for future generations. My hobbies include organic gardening, hiking, and spending as much time outside as possible.
Green Panthers meet the approximately the first and third Thursday of each month in the Mini Theater at 8:00 a.m. In the case of delayed start or snow days there will be no meeting.
First Greenhouse Harvest
The students harvested the first organic vegetables from the PLES greenhouse during the week of Sept.7, 2017. It consisted of beets and kale. The PLES nutritional services staff prepared and served them at lunch. The role of the greenhouse is to encourage healthy diet choices by having the children raise organic vegetables from seed to plate. We planted carrots, cabbage, and yarrow for future harvest.
