Start Time:  7am
Location: Walsingham Elementary School in Largo, FL
 

The GREEN APPLE DAY OF SERVICE initiative is powered by volunteers who participate in community-based service projects. The international day of service gives parents, teachers, students, companies and local organizations the opportunity to transform our schools into healthy, safe and productive learning environments.

BIG ROI! 
Businesses that contribute project materials or make a substantial sponsorship donation receive the right to use the Green Apple mark to show their association with and support of the Green Apple initiative. The USGBC will shine a bright spotlight on sponsors via website, social media, activity blasts, press releases and, of course, at Walsingham Elementary School. Additionally, our project will receive national exposure through the USGBC. 

THE TASK
Through our team of parents, students, teachers, volunteers and local organizations and companies, our Green Apple service project will paint and install 3 rain barrel systems along with building a composting area at Walsingham Elementary School that will serve as a teaching tool for students to learn more about sustainability and the built environment. The water and composting system will be incorporated into the school's science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) program to enhance the existing curriculum and provide a active learning experience.
