Under the direction of Steven Schultz, EcoVision’s Permaculture project was called Roofs for Kids, which involved re-purposing a sea container into an energy-efficient goat barn with a living roof and a renewable solar energy system. The goats and roof-top gardens will provide educational opportunity for students with the Green Certificate programs, animal husbandry, and agricultural courses along with a potential dual credit program with Old’s College. The insulated sea container would provide a secure, insulated home for the goats and the garden would provide food and habitat for local pollinators and bees. The edible items from the gardens would provide food for their food’s programs, for their volunteers (who call themselves the Friends of the greenhouse or FOG) and the community. Their project includes a water catchment system, drip irrigation system, and a fence.

So cool to see this. I graduated from LCHS in 1995, just a couple years prior to Steve Schultz starting there. I sure wish I could have had this awesome opportunity when I was there. Happy to see this great project with a great leader at the helm. 🙂
