Sustainability at the Front Door

Description

Students and teachers from the Washington-Lee High School IB Environmental Systems classes put what they had studied in the classroom into action in this hands-on project to manage stormwater and reduce erosion at the front of the school. The students first excavated the area, moved literally tons of stone and planted over 200 native plants in the first installment of the Greening the Grounds Initiative at Washington-Lee High School. The students also created a facebook page to document the project and an innovative QR code plant labelling system.
Nancy, through her masterful landscape design and willingness to get hands-on with my environmental science students, was able to convey a sense of community, ownership, and environmental stewardship with the rain garden project we successfully accomplished at Washington-Lee. Ryan Miller
