Green Team News
Green Team was busy this month! We formed a Garden Committee and wrote a grant to integrate an edible school garden into the Thompson curriculum. (We are seeking parents, teachers and 4th and 5th grade students to be part of the committee.)
Green team hosted and filmed our first plant walk featuring Meredith Seifert discussing the super powers of Thompson plants.
October 16th-18th the 5th grade community headed to Alton Jones for Science Camp. On October 19th the Green Team club harvested from the garden and shared the fruits of it’s harvest with Thompson After School program. On October 20th Kate Joyce Murphy led Plogging! We walked and picked up trash around Thompson. That day the club also made an installation of tiny pumpkin houses:Green Team Urban Ecovillage or Else (an unlivable planet!) The neighborhood featured natural building techniques and the latest green technology: thick insulated walls, all natural building materials and furniture, radiant floors, solar panels, wind turbines, natural lighting with sky lights, compost toilets, green roofs, living gardens, a forest, compost bins, rainwater catchment tanks, a fish pond, bike paths, a electric car power station, solar ovens, a greenhouse and a cafe.
The Green Team club meets after school on the first and third Fridays.
