Sustainability Education

Bright Blue is part of the Montpelier Ecosystem working to build connections and strengthen the resiliency of our community. Bright Blue is helping to identify new connections, and strengthen existing relationships. We are also contributing media skills and training as we track and promote the story.

 

The Montpelier public schools take pride in their commitment to "Personalization, Community, and Sustainability." For years teachers and administrators have been developing lessons, projects, and initiatives that address the social, economic, and environmental needs of present and future generations. These relevant educational experiences engage students in their community, leading to a life of active citizenry, which is essential to a healthy democracy and planet.

The Garden at 22 Marvin Street

We've been creating perennial gardens at our house since we moved in 7 years ago. In 2020, we approached our neighbor Susan Adams, who is 80 years old and not capable of gardening, and asked if she would like to be part of a city-wide "lawns-to-gardens" project and the Garden at 22 Marvin Street was born. Susan and her daughter Ellen will get all the vegies they want, volunteers will be compensated with produce, and all surplus will go the Montpelier's Senior Center.
