Highland Park Elementary Kicks Off Commitment to Environmental Action

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

On October 15 Washington Green Schools gathered at Highland Park Elementary School alongside volunteers from the RAVE Foundation, Seattle Sounders FC, and Abbott Construction for a terrific Day of Service. Together we built and installed six garden beds, a worm composting bin, and a barrier for the new rain garden. Volunteers also planted trees, dug a trench to prevent flooding, created a new pathway, painted salmon sculptures, and helped manage food waste in the cafeteria. Whew, that’s quite the list! Thanks to all our volunteers, the Highland Park Elementary PTA, and Seattle Public Schools for their contributions and hard work. And thanks to Swansons Nursery for their donation of starts to plant in the raised beds!
