.Green Teens At Learning Garden

Summer was off to a great start. Green teens picked up valuable skills from their sessions at Learning Garden.  They are were taught how to compost, identify the weeds, plant vegetables,etc.  It was truly hard work, but very rewarding. We would like to give special thanks to Jackie and Rebecca.

Be as creative as you want when decorating your cars.  Baseball cards, straws and other materials can be attached to the wheel spokes to give the car a sound of an engine. We encourage our GREEN TEENS to come up with a few catch phrases that would embody the mission of a Green Teen to decorate their cars. All groups should prepare a description on how they built their cars to display, so that our audience can see the work that was put into the design of these cars, eco-friendly car concepts are welcome.

Let's Go Green Teens! April is our Month...
