DISCOVERY ECO ACTION

 

 

Sustainability Instructional Changes for 2021-2022


The Sustainability Committee is excited to announce that we will be expanding our work beyond Eco Action to make it more accessible to all Discovery students.

 

Through the “Innovation Class” rotation, students will participate in an hour of instruction inspired by The National Wildlife Federation’s “Sustainable Pathways,” once every 3-4 weeks. More specifically, Explorers will engage in growing food in our vegetable, pollinator, and hydroponic gardens. So although Eco Action will not take place outside of school this year, Discovery’s young Green Leaders will have plenty of opportunities to share their knowledge.

 

Parents, if you are interested in volunteering to help with this work please reach out to Molly Fisher at virginia.fisher@apsva.us.

 


 

Discovery's Eco Action Team is in need of some Garden Volunteers!

 

Volunteering involves selecting a weekend day to tend to both of our outdoor garden spaces by picking up trash, weeding and pruning plants, watering, and picking any ripe fruits or veggies! Click HERE to sign up.

 

If you have any questions regarding the garden spaces, please contact Ms. Fisher at virginia.fisher@apsva.us. Happy Gardening!
