Jill Levasseur, Academy Acres Greenhouse

High school students at Bacon Academy in Colchester, CT, created Academy Acres Greenhouse, a farms to food program where the food from their garden is harvested and served in the cafeteria on a monthly basis. The students are in need of a greenhouse in order to expand the project and serve more food throughout the winter. The greenhouse will allow them to expand the process and to be ready for a larger planting in the spring.
