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.
