Emilee Wise, Editor-in-Chief

N.J.S.D. is a finalist in the “Opal Apples Youth Make a Difference” grant, worth  $75,000.

The grant is awarded to young leaders taking on big environmental topics such as food security, nutrition, agriculture, food politics and education.

If awarded the grant, N.J.S.D. would purchase hydroponics units and supplies from Fork Farms, a local business based in Appleton.

With the hydroponic units placed in classrooms throughout the district, students would gain tactile experiences with vital skills such as indoor gardening, farming, and botany, resulting in the best part of hydroponic units– fresh produce all year round.
