EvCC's Early Learning Center Gets a Sustainable Greenhouse

The Early Learning Center at EvCC is now host to a plastic bottle greenhouse! Funded by the EvCC Sustainability Intitiative, this reclaimed bottle greenhouse was conceived and constructed by a cohort within this year's EvCC Leadership Academy as their project du jour. The EvCC employees in this Leadership Academy group designed the greenhouse to help kids (and their parents!) gain direct experiential education on sustainability, resource conservation and environmental stewardship.
