We always love when the school year starts as we get updates on how the school Growing Domes are doing. This year’s no exception. Roaring Fork High School and Yampah Mountain High School located high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado were both featured in the Sunday news. After 2+ years of gardening, the programs are still growing strong.
Here’s a link to the article: http://www.postindependent.com/article/20111016/VALLEYNEWS/111019924/1083&ParentProfile=1074
For a more personal tour full of great pictures of the Roaring Fork High School Growing Dome and garden read their most recent blog post: http://rfhs-greenhouse.blogspot.com/2011/10/rfhs-garden-first-summer-2011.html
These two are models of the kind of influence many schools would like to have for their kids. We are very proud of them. Michael Thompson and Jerome Ostentowski and Ilene Pevek are to be praised! I hope to get more pictures before winter.
