Emily G. Johns was the only school in Illinois to receive the $1,000 GreenWorks Grant last year. The EGJ Eco Club utilized the grant to build an amazing cedar raised vegetable garden. The 2017-18 Eco Club students built and planted the garden.
The 2018-19 Eco Club students are now harvesting the vegetables for some delicious soup and salsa. The students learned valuable lessons on building, planting, harvesting, preparing and cooking.
