Toronto born BCF teacher Warren Tanner talks more in depth about his School Development Project, Gongthung Greenhouse in a post from Green Metropolis, an online community that empowers the people and city of Toronto to live greener.
With our newly constructed greenhouse, Gongthung Middle Secondary School will be able to participate for the first time in Bhutan’s Agricultural and Food Sufficiency Program. Students will be able to learn first-hand a variety of alternative cultivation and harvest methods, with the hopes that they’ll share such knowledge with their families beyond the school gates. In addition to this, and thanks to the overwhelming support our project has garnered, our bonus funds will go toward excursions to regional agricultural research centres, during which students will not only learn about operating a greenhouse but the evolving career options that exist in the rapidly changing agricultural sector, as well. – Warren Tanner
