Green for green?

3 Jun

Looking for something fun to do on a Friday evening this summer? Love to listen to live music? Then we have a concert for you! On Friday, June 18, there will be a concert by Bret Hesla and Linda Breitag at the Haslett-Marroquin family farm, Finca Mirasol, to benefit ARTech’s own greenhouse project! The show starts at 7:00 pm, and there is no admission fee; free will donations are encouraged.

The ARTech greenhouse project was started in February of 2009 in order to plan for and eventually construct an organic, solar-powered greenhouse at the school. Since then, we’ve come a long way. The only thing holding us back from building the greenhouse is a $1700 gap between what we have and what we need. Other sources of funding are secured, including grants from the Northfield Union of Youth in partnership with the Healthy Community Initiative, and from the Minnesota Clean Energy Resource Teams. We plan on having the greenhouse built and ready for use by students by the time school starts, but we need your help! Join us on the 18th for a great concert and a chance to help make ARTech a better place to go to school.
