David Weingrod, a Milwaukee Public School service learning coordinator and school social worker, makes impassioned case for helping our students became key participants in the Greening of Milwaukee.

Says Weingrod, “There is great excitment among teachers and students around many environmental issues, including recycling, energy efficiency and water retention: all of which are highlighted by the Green Team. Students can become part of the solution and these projects can become great “learning/doing” labs for schools and community learning centers. We want to get our hands dirty and hope this initiative figures out how to include students in meaningful ways.”
