We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.
—Native American proverb
Schools Becoming a Model of Sustainability
We are a group of dedicated parents who are making changes at the grassroots level. We support ecologically sound practices, habits, and values in our children’s schools through hard work and dedication. We foster in children a belief that they CAN do something that makes a difference. As our society attempts to move toward an ecologically sustainable future, it is important that the schools model practices that reinforce the role we all play in learning, growing, and living in a healthy environment.
