Creating Green Schoolyards

We are sponsoring an informational session on how to design and sustain green schoolyards so that the conventional schoolyard becomes a living-learning laboratory. Come check it out on October 14th!

Sharon Danks, author of Asphalt to Ecosystem: Design Ideas for Schooyard Transformation, and Rachel Pringle, author of How to Grow a School Garden: A Complete Guide for Parents and Teachers will show examples of innovative designs for edible gardens, rainwater catchment systems, energy generation projects, and more!

The event is organized by Moraine Township of Highland Park and will take place on Thursday, October 14th from noon – 1:30 pm at the Highland Park Public Library Auditorium. For more information and to RSVP, please click here.
