Gladstone Secondary School has been awarded $50,000 to support the building of a 30-person greenhouse for the school’s science and foods programs.

Gladstone’s 1,200 students will be the biggest beneficiaries of the new project. While the school currently has a garden and uses some of its produce in its foods program (based in the school cafeteria), the planned greenhouse will greatly increase its vegetable producing capacity. The new greenhouse will provide a many new opportunities for the school's garden club in addition to the school’s science and food program curriculum.

The Aviva funds of $50,000 will support the school greenhouse’s first phase. For more information on the Gladstone submission go here.
