Sweet Sustainability

Sweet Tree Arts is committed to sustainability and lowering our impact on the planet.

*Both buildings are currently powered by solar power.

*Our greenhouse, donated in 2019, offers lessons and experiences to encourage our learners to put their hands in the earth, meet master gardeners and learn about gardening and worm composting.

*In 2019 we created a student run Sustainability festival encouraging sustainable practices and using the power of the imagination and the arts to bring people together, inviting local organizations to spark social responsibility inline with the UN sustainability goals.

*In 2020 our school goats arrived to help take care of a growing poison ivy problem on the school grounds.

*Students and staff are encouraged to bike or walk to school and do so often.

*Many of our lessons take place in the outdoors allowing experiences to lead to stewardship.

*In 2021 Sweet Tree Arts received a grant from S.E.A and is now a gear site for the annual Maine Big Night - Amphibian count for Knox county each spring.
