Eco Club

September 13, 2018

Emily G. Johns Eco Club was the only school in Illinois to receive the $1000 GreenWorks Grant last year! We utilized the grant to build an amazing cedar raised vegetable garden. Pictured are EGJ's 2017-2018 Eco Club students building and planting the garden.

And here are EGJ's 2018-2019 Eco Club students harvesting those vegetables the next school year, for some delicious soup and salsa! They learned valuable lessons on building, planting, harvesting, preparing and cooking their own food!
