Uruguay School Teaches Students To Respect The Environment

 

A new school in Uruguay is teaching about environmental sustainability and practicing what it teaches.

 

The school in the small town of Jaureguiberry was built with recycled materials. Clean energy powers the building. The students learn to grow their own organic food. And, a regular curriculum is combined with lessons on farming, recycling and water conservation.

 

The 43 students at the school grow their own crops like tomatoes, basil, and strawberries. The food they grow they get to eat too.

 

The Uruguayan organization Tagma developed this school called Public School 294. Tagma supports responsible and sustainable ways of living and using natural resources. U.S. architect Michael Reynolds designed the school which opened in February 2016. Reynolds is known for his advocacy of sustainable building designs.
