Green Newton — Schools Connections

Green Newton created its School Connections initiative two years ago to promote environmental sustainability in and beyond Newton classrooms. It’s currently working with seven of Newton’s 15 elementary schools, one of four middle schools, and both high schools to create school gardens, teach sustainability, and develop awareness of environmental challenges and solutions. The group also sponsors Students for a Greener World — an organization of Newton middle- and high-school students interested in making a positive environmental impact and teaching kids about the environment.
