Two New Haven schools with environmental themes won green recognition Thursday from the state.
Several state agencies—including education, environmental, public health, and construction services—honored the two schools at a ceremony in Hartford.
They gave the schools—Common Ground High School, a not-for-profit charter school; and Barnard Environmental Studies Magnet School, a K-8 run by the public school system—annual “Green Ribbon” awards for environmental consciousness.
Common Ground was recognized for, among other efforts, running a 20-acre urban garden producing 7,000 pounds of food; animal husbandry programs; and onsite student-led “rainwater recapture, school lighting improvements, recycling and composting” efforts. Click here to read about an example.
