Evansville Elementary School students got a first look inside their school’s greenhouse as it was officially unveiled Tuesday.
Staff will use the greenhouse as a teaching tool for a variety of subjects, and the project will help kids learn about healthy, locally produced foods.
By the time the new school year begins, the greenhouse will also be equipped with an aquaponics system for raising fish and plants together. The kids will also help care for tree saplings that will eventually form a windbreak for the greenhouse, according to LeAnn Miller of the Casper Community Greenhouse Project.
The new facility received support from the Casper Community Greenhouse Project and Sinclair Refinery, along with the Town of Evansville.
