In partnership with KACEE’s Kansas Green Schools, Greenbush will be hosting monthly virtual meetings with Middle and High School students and teachers interested in being “Green Leaders” for their schools. Each semester we will complete a new Project Based Learning investigation to address a topic in the area of sustainability.
During the Fall 2021 semester we will cover Waste and Recycling. Students will conduct a hands-on investigation throughout their school collecting waste and recycling data. They will use that information to develop a correlating action plan to make a positive impact in their school and/or community.
Special Education Career Readiness Internships (limited availability)
Interns attend the greenhouse regularly to enhance basic social and employability skills, build a resume, and gain work experience, with the goal of preparing them for the workforce. Interns participate in activities from planting and harvesting, to testing water parameters, calculating and mixing nutrients, keeping traceability records, invoicing, and basic customer service.
Horticultural Internships (limited availability)
Interns attend the greenhouse weekly to learn the basic operations of our hydroponic greenhouse through hands-on experience. This could be students looking to fulfill a SAE (supervised agricultural experience) for FFA, or just students interested in horticulture or hydroponics. Interns learn and complete tasks such as planting, harvesting, testing water parameters, calculating and mixing nutrients, keeping traceability record, pest management, and more!
