Student Capstone Projects

Green Academy Gives Back

Capstone Projects

Many years ago, our Green program started with one teacher who had a passion for gardening. Since then, we have grown into a full time working farm. Each year our students work hard to leave their mark on this school and help our green program grow by doing independent capstone projects. 

Some of thecapstone projects from the past include:

  • Water Retention System
  • Butterfly Garden
  • Murals & Signs
  • Audio Walking Tour (Featured)
  • Chickens
  • Ducks
  • Bees
  • Sheep
  • Plant Identification (Featured)
  • Purple Martin Houses
  • Animal Pens
  • Aquaponics
  • Fruit Trees
  • Plus Much More
