A Geodesic Greenhouse outdoor classroom is under construction at Chamisa Elementary School in White Rock.
Volunteers are constructing a Growing Spaces Geodesic Dome Greenhouse complete with pond and solar climate control for students to use this summer and throughout the year. It’s an exciting addition to Chamisa’s science program and will allow students to do real life science in their own backyard.
Volunteers working on the project Wednesday included three spouses of Chamisa staff, a Chamisa parent and three staff members. Other volunteers join on other days to make this a school community project for the students.
The project is funded through a collaborative effort between Chamisa and the LAPS Foundation through a generous donation from the Rynd estate. An open house and dedication is set for 11:30 a.m. to noon Friday for the Rynd Outdoor Science Learning Dome.
