Our younger generation is the most valuable asset we have for a sustainable LA. When schools involve their students in a quality environmental education, everyone wins. In fact, the benefits extend beyond creating a cleaner healthier world. Studies have shown that environmental education can have significant benefits to a student’s overall learning experience across all academic disciplines.
Whether it’s creating a greener campus, or participating in service learning, TreePeople can support your school through a comprehensive program.
When we plant trees on a campus and maintain them so they are healthy, they can do their part to create a beautiful, shady environment conducive to learning.
On most schools the land consists mainly of concrete and asphalt, as well as lawn and dirt areas that are compacted by foot traffic. Removing concrete or converting dirt and lawn areas into gardens supports healthy soil and creates outdoor classrooms.
To learn how to convert areas around campus into gardens we offer guides and workshops.
