In June 2016, Mr. Jeremy Winsor went to work soliciting support for the construction of a greenhouse at Fulton Schools. The campaign was initially driven by then-school board member Mr. Dan Rossman. An initial contribution from the Gratiot County Community Foundation led to additional support from local business partners. By June 2017 the $39,000 required for the greenhouse was raised. We are indebted to the various sponsors whose donations made this project possible. Sponsors can be viewed below. In July 2017, the Fulton Schools school board approved an additional $20,000 for the construction of slab/cinder block foundation to put the greenhouse frame on.
A portion of the GCCF grant was earmarked for the construction of an aquaponics system. This system is already being built by high school Earth Science and Environmental Science students. Additional information on this system can be found by clicking on this link
We are looking for more than just financial partners with this project. We would also like to develop curriculum partners. We want local organizations to help with the development of lessons that would benefit students as they enter agricultural careers. If you or your organization are interested in partnering with us please feel free to contact Jeremy Winsor via e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org
