The North Gibson School Board will open up discussion on the addition of greenhouse for student use, following a proposal on how it would be utilized. Board member Amy Bingham brought up a greenhouse during Monday’s meeting, and said they’ve lately spent a lot of money on field updates and she felt a greenhouse was important for the student’s education. She said it would benefit the Life Skills students, students in the ag program, as well as offer possible community opportunities to groups like the Master Gardners and Purdue Extension.
“I just wish you board members would think about this and consider it. I think it would be a great opportunity for these kids,” she said. “It would just teach them all every day living.” She said she knows the corporation has the money to complete a project like that.
“I just think it would go over so well for these kids,” she said.
Board president Mike Ice said he did not disagree with Bingham’s points and opened the floor for discussion from the other board members.
