Northfield School of Arts and Technology (or ARTech, for short) is a small charter school in southeastern Minnesota. Many people would call ARTech a “green” school, with good reason. During the summer of 2008, a student-driven project installed a 2kw solar array on the south of the school
In October 2010, a greenhouse joined the panels. It was the culmination of almost three school years of effort by a group of middle- turned high-school students. The greenhouse will be carbon neutral and unheated, adding 960 square feet of classroom to the space with no added emissions.
So please, look around. We’d love to share what we know with you!
