Learning at the Trash Museum

My team works at the Connecticut Trash Museum. This spring we built an exhibit displaying three strategies for growing food in small spaces using recycled materials. The idea is to inspire visitors who don’t have access to land at home to try out these affordable ideas to grow their own food.

Once they approached our exhibit the instructor began to comment on the plant and irrigation system. The student, on the other hand, commented on our use of recycled materials and our methods of upcycling. I was impressed by the younger students’ knowledge of recycling and I’m very proud to participate in Summer of Solutions in working to educate children about sustainability.
