Harvest Festival 2016

Building Community Through Work, Play and a Harvest Feast!

On Saturday, November 19, the Environmental Charter Middle School Inglewood community of students, families, teachers and community partners came together to ready our campus for the winter season. The Harvest Festival included a variety of campus beautification projects, DIY greening-at-home workshops led by our students, a community swap shop and a special harvest lunch featuring produce grown by our students. A special thanks to community volunteers from CarMax for joining us!

“Community sustainability goes beyond resource management. We must cultivate our communities by coming together and sharing what’s positive and good. Our ECS community came together this past Saturday in Inglewood to work, commune and feast together!”
