A School District Embraces Sustainability: A 2018–19 Success Story

Note: Posts before 2020 reflect EarthGen’s former name, Washington Green Schools.

Located on Whidbey Island, Oak Harbor Public Schools leads the way among sustainable school districts in Washington. In partnership with Washington Green Schools, this diverse community has reduced energy and water use, invested in school gardens, and taught students and families to be good stewards of the environment. A visit to Oak Harbor reveals a culture of sustainability throughout the district.

“Washington Green Schools provided our students and staff the inspiration, challenge, and structure to achieve things in sustainability that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.”

– Dr. Lance Gibbon, Superintendent of Oak Harbor Public Schools
