Students in AP Human Geography (taught by Shiela Sievert) and AP Environmental Science (taught by Lori Watson) visited Green School Farms and Kawasaki earlier this week.
At the farm, students planted tomatoes and peppers while learning about sustainable farming methods and organic practices. The owner, Gary Fehr, spoke about restoring a prairie, which will help pollinate the crops when they bloom.

At Kawasaki, students split into two, with one group touring the water treatment facility and another touring the plant, and learned about the use of robotics in manufacturing.
