Green School Award
*Due to recent circumstances, the Green School Award for 2019 - 2020 and the 2020 - 2021 school years were canceled. We hope to relaunch the Green School Award in the upcoming 2021 - 2022 school year.
Green School Award Winners
The City of Ventura’s Environmental Sustainability Division in partnership with Agromin Premium Soil Products and E.J. Harrison offers the Environmental Leader Award in recognition of Earth Day. In addition to City recognition there is a monetary award to help further fund sustainability projects at schools in the city. All public and private schools within the Ventura City limits that demonstrate exemplary efforts to help our environment are encouraged to apply.
Congratulations to the 2018-2019 Winner!
We are happy to announce that Buena High School won our 2018-2019 Environmental Leadership Award.
Buena High School was presented the 2018-2019 Environmental Leadership Award for reducing their environmental footprint and enhancing health and wellness opportunities for students. The school is in the process of renovating an abandoned garden to include fruit trees, vegetable planters, and space for native plant propagation. The new landscape will include rainwater capture features and a water efficient drip irrigation system. Eventually, the school hopes to use the renovated space to reduce food waste through composting.
