Gladstone Secondary has been awarded $50,000 to support the building of a 30 person greenhouse for the school's science and foods programs.
Gladstone's 1,200 students will be the biggest beneficiaries of the new project, say staff. While the school currently has a garden and uses some of its produce in its foods program (based in the school cafeteria), the planned greenhouse will greatly increase the school's vegetable producing capacity. The new greenhouse will also provide many new opportunities for the school's garden club in addition to the school's science and food program curriculum.
The greenhouse grant comes from the Aviva Fund.
