Gunston’s Perma-garden Featured on Green Scene

In this week’s episode of Green Scene, students and staff at Gunston Middle School talk about the perma-garden that they recently built. A perma-garden is a self-sustaining garden that uses non-invasive species to sustain itself. Tech Ed teacher Topher Paterno hopes that this teaching tool will allow students to gain respect for the land and food as well as learn how to give back.

You can see “Green Scene” on Comcast Cable Channel 70 and Verizon FiOS Channel 41. “Green Scene” will air daily immediately following “APS Snapshots” at 7:00 pm Monday – Friday, except on School Board meeting nights. “Green Scene” can also be viewed on YouTube at AETVaps.

Green Scene is filmed and produced by the Arlington Educational Television Department (AETV) in cooperation with the Arlington Public Schools Department of School and Community Relations.
