TOUR the Irwin A. and Robert D. Goodman Greenhouse at Spring Harbor Middle School
Thursday, May 21, 2015
1110 Spring Harbor Drive, Madison, WI
Leader: Dave Ropa – science teacher and environmental scientist leading the project
In 2010, the Foundation for Madison Public Schools gave Spring Harbor Environmental Middle School a $9,500 grant to build a sustainable greenhouse out of reclaimed, repurposed and sustainably-made materials. Since then, the school has raised $95,000 more to help complete the project by this fall when students return to school.
Students will use the facility to study sustainability, grow plants for research, help other schools start gardens, and extend the school’s growing season. The school is creating an urban gardening campus, with a number of new ways for students, adults and our community to explore the outdoors. Eventually, students will help design and install an aquaponics system, a brick oven for making breads and pizzas, and a pond for studying the relationship between run-off and aquatic species. Come take a tour of this exciting new resource!
