Charleroi alumnus James Protin has partnered with current Charleroi senior Emily Mills to develop an organic food garden, which will be used for scientific research.
With the help of faculty and students alike, Emily has formed a plan to develop a food garden behind the school. She plans to incorporate aspects of chemistry, biology, and economics while promoting the all-encompassing theme of sustainability. The team will document research from this garden, as well as the School Health Council's garden, and use these findings to develop alternative methods of agriculture.
Thanks to Mr. Protin's support, Emily will be able to develop an organic garden at CHS that will also help her grow in her future career plans in the development of sustainable agriculture.
