This month, team members from The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo partnered with Green Our Planet and faculty, staff, and students to construct a fully functional garden classroom at Helen Herr Elementary School.
The team braved the hot temperatures to install six garden beds, irrigation drip lines, a composter, shed and water table.
The goal of the Outdoor Garden Classroom Program is to help public and private schools raise funding for and build outdoor vegetable gardens where students can be taught a variety of subjects, including STEM, health, and nutrition.
Green Our Planet’s “turn-key” Outdoor Garden Classroom Program is now the largest and most comprehensive school garden program offered in Nevada and the largest in the United States.
Sands Cares and Sands ECO360 have committed to funding the garden classroom at Helen Herr for the next three years, for a total donation of $20,000.
