PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

Feedback form is now closed.
Want to start some more student projects but concerned about that "magic sauce"? Right students, right teacher, right time? Come learn about our community greenhouse and the continuum of student projects involved in its construction. An off-grid solar PV system, permaculture landscape, climate battery, vermicomposting and so much more. Every project has been tackled by SHS students in collaboration with community members.  Some projects have been totally student led and others have been teacher led but the common theme has been everyone walks away fulfilled.

Learn about ways to fund your own project, potential pitfalls, and how to leverage your story into something that can potentially grow over time all while learning about the amazing space that is the Strathmore High School Community Greenhouse.
