Green (Academy) Means ‘Go’ at Rosemont
Students in Rosemont High School’s Green Academy have had a busy May! At the Green Restaurant Association of Sacramento (GRAS) Compost Awareness Festival, students distributed more than 300 tomato seedlings grown in biology class and gave out freshly baked bread prepared by Chef Scott Singer’s culinary classes.
At the Northern California Brick by Brick competition, Hollie Farnbach came in second among 23 competitors challenged to build an eight foot wall. Student teams also participated in the Solar Car Races at American River College on May 4. Rosemont students took three of the five trophies awarded: First Place, Stock Parts Award and Sustainability Award. Finally, students continue to work in the school’s garden. More than 80 feet of walkways and two benches have been installed by Bret Hutchison’s Construction and Advanced Masonry classes. Cilantro, radishes and pole beans flourish and the harvesting of fava beans continues.
