Green Ideas Winner Follow-Up: Lyles Crouch Elementary

Daniel Waller and his students at Lyles Crouch Elementary are on their way to making their brilliant Green Idea happen! 

Waller proposed using high efficiency indoor grow lights to grown plants year round and teaching children about the natural growing cycle, eating healthy, and the importance of protecting natural environments.

This past summer, Waller and his kids were busy building grow shelves, lights and a raised bed, and buying the right seeds and tools for the job.

Planting begins in January!

Check out their progress so far:
