Green Service Day

October 13, 2017

Parker Woods Montessori is a LEED Gold Certified school with an established outdoor learning garden. USGBC volunteers will work with staff, students, parents and business partners for a half day+ service event that will demonstrate how to care for our environment. We will further develop a wooded area, adjacent to the existing garden, into a small walkable 'micro-forest' with a path and native plantings. We will plant daffodils along a walkway to brighten our spring, cut back honeysuckle to clear some space, and install signage to educate students about the varieties of plants in the garden.

Intended impact of project

Improved occupant health & performance
Increased environmental & sustainability literacy
