The Sustainable Schools Fellows worked with their lead teachers in the Tempe Union High School District to plan and implement Green Apple Day of Service events at their schools. Desert Vista High School threw a frock swap and displayed their solar project, McClintock High School hosted a set of Solar Awareness activities including solar cooking of quesadillas, Tempe High constructed raised beds for composting and planting on campus and assisted the Clark Park Community with gardening activities, and Compadre Academy planted their new 80’ x 13’ garden plot with 200 seedlings. The project was spearheaded by Compadre science teacher Elliott Belden, who worked with Whole Foods, the Tempe Union High School District and ASU Sustainable Schools Fellow Ben MacNeille to implement planting of seedlings that were grown by students of DJ Moran’s sustainability class. Compadre’s garden was a vision created by students and teachers over a year ago, and through their hard work, it is now a reality!
