Throughout the school year, the Alternative High School students and staff have been making strides in sustainability and beautification of the school grounds. In the Fall, students and staff planted tulips and lilies that have grown beautifully this Spring. Used coffee grounds were collected, recycled, and used as fertilizers. The students also maintained a composter that used scraps from the students' breakfasts and lunches as fertilizers or the vegetable garden. The garden is planted each Spring by the Alternative High School students and staff. It consists of various fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, green beans, kale, potatoes, hot peppers, and tomatillos. Throughout the Summer and Fall, the food grown is picked and sent to a local food pantry. Over the past 3 years that the students and staff have been planting and taking care of the garden, it has improved in health and appearance.
