What's New at Next Step Sherwood Park

Sustainability Day at the U of A

The Next Step Environmental Action Team (NEAT) and friends spent a fantastic day at the University of Alberta last week to learn about the U of A's efforts to create a sustainable campus and to increase our school's environmental action. As part of the the U of A's Sustainable Awareness Week, our students took a sustainability tour of the campus in the morning, and learned how to compost from the City of Edmonton's Master Composter, Mark Allen-Stumpf.  At the end of the day, Next Step school was the proud owner of two composting units, and received kudos from the University of Alberta Ambassadors for our sustainability efforts, including a community kitchen, community garden and our ongoing (and growing!) environmental group at the school.

Special thanks to Kerry Rose and staff from CMASTE, ConocoPhillips who supplied grant funds, the City of Edmonton, and Drew and Leah - (Ambassadors from the University of Alberta) for a great day!
