Shawn, from the Green House Bus, brought Mr. Green Bus to Sego Lily School on Monday May 23rd. As you walk into the bus, you are struck with the beautiful dichotomy of old vs. new paradigm. The yellow school bus that typically took us into the structured atmosphere of public school is now a green, swirling, blooming, Eco-friendly wonderland! Shawn described the various plants sprouting from railroad tie boxes and coached the kids as the excitedly tried and tasted different growing edibles. This was quite an experience - one that must not be missed!

Since we haven't built our new school yet we have a big empty piece of land about 5 minutes away from where are school is now. What could we do with a big empty piece of land (well, besides putting up a giant photovoltaic array)? We chose to start a school garden!!!
Many of the students at Sego Lily love to garden and are excited to spend time and bring energy to our new building site.
Fudge, Scrumdidilumptious, and Rachet helped Gorilla Girl clear some land on Friday. These girls are hard workers! We have some seedlings ready to go in the ground and are planning to get compost this week thanks to Wasatch Community Gardens!
We would love to get more volunteers!!! Also, we are a non-profit organization and accept in-kind donations of gardening equipment. If you would like to donate any items on our wish list please let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 801.274.9555.
