Green is the way to go – Sandburg and Discovery school community put in extra work on campus

    Sandburg/Discovery Green School work partyIt takes extra work to make a campus look this good. Families from Carl Sandburg Elementary and Discovery Community School spent a weekend in October digging into the ground. The campus, which includes both schools, is part of the King County Green Schools program. The county provides resources needed to help schools become more environmentally efficient. Sandburg/Discovery is a level 4 Green School which means they compost, recycle, reduce energy and are herbicide-free. On this day in October, a group of parents and student volunteers were weeding, mulching and much more.
