OSMS celebrates opening of school greenhouse

After years of planning, fundraising and volunteer work, the Olentangy Shanahan Middle School (OSMS) Greenhouse project blossomed into reality May 8th with an official open house at the school.

Located in the school’s courtyard, the greenhouse was built entirely by volunteers, including parents and teachers, and paid for through grants, donations and fundraising events. It will now be used for hands-on science activities and community-based projects supporting the district’s wellness policy. Similar greenhouse projects are now underway at Olentangy Hyatts Middle School and Tyler Run Elementary School.
