Takoma Education Campus - USGBC NCR Connect the Dots Project

Greenhouse Resurrection - The Takoma Education Campus has a working greenhouse on the 3rd floor deck area that has remained un-utilized for the last 8 years. Our project is to rehabilitate the greenhouse into working order to support a spring semester lesson plan that focuses on teaching students in 4th-6th grades the basics of gardening and the life cycle of food production. Along with the greenhouse, we will be creating a number of planter boxes on the roof deck for students to move the plants to once the greenhouse phase of growing is completed.
