Our idea is to build a greenhouse to save money and energy. The greenhouse will be efficient to our school in many ways. Follow along to hear more...
- how long "recess" is at lunch
- where kids are aloud to roam
- saves energy
- saves money
- provides fresh food
- teaches kids responsibility and care for the world
- The plants will need just the right amount of water
- Sunlight is a very important factor ~ meaning electrical should be installed incase the sun doesn't peek out
Who's Gonna Do The Work?
- they will deliver, install, and go over details about the greenhouse
- they make specific greenhouses for schools
- everybody can go out and help water, care, and make compost for the greenhouse
*We Would Have to Get Approval From the School Board of Coppell and Mrs. Froese
- soil, plants, seeds cost around 500 dollars
- greenhouse delivery, construction, furnishings - around 6,500 - 7,000
- around 7,000- 8,000
*might want to get an inspection of greenhouse site just to make sure nothing is wrong/shows up unexpectedly adding extra costs
- This is a very efficient plan because we save money and energy
- We're teaching kids responsibility
- a pro is that we have fresh foods
- a con is that it takes time for us to get our end deal
