Rooted in their studies of environmental sciences, students recently completed their Fall occupations.
In groups, they collaborated in hands-on work that was inspired by our own community and the land surrounding the middle school buildings.
Their energies were focused in three different areas: the gardens, the bees, and mushroom cultivation.
While working in these areas, students researched topics ranging from plant and bee biology to innovations in medicine related to mushrooms.
Meanwhile, they also worked on creative projects related to their research and even developed some potential new products for North House Specialties, such as beeswax candles and mushroom-based facial masks.
"Creativity is a habit, and the best creativity is the result of good work habits."
Artwork inspired by nature artist Jill Bliss is also in its finishing stages and will be on display at their Man-Made Environmental Issues symposium this Friday.
