The goal of the project presented in this report was to revitalize the greenhouse at the Mount Carmel Area Jr./Sr. High School in Mount Carmel, PA. The greenhouse had not been used since the early 2000s and it was in need of cleaning, maintenance, and planting before it could be used again. The school hoped for the greenhouse to be revived in order to benefit the students through hands-on course work, as well as various extracurricular activities in order to further engage the students in gardening and sustainability. Along with restoring the greenhouse, the group created curriculum materials for different classroom activities that incorporate the greenhouse.

This entry includes three items: the main 26 page project report Mount Carmel Jr./Sr. High School Greenhouse Curriculum and Maintenance Plan, a 2 page Brief Overview of Mount Carmel Greenhouse Project listed under "Additional Files," and a short 1 min 46 second video which shows the group's work at the greenhouse.

This project was completed for Environmental Studies 411 (ENST 411), a senior capstone course taught by Prof. Ben Marsh.
