Newtown Greenery/Plant Science in Action is an applied science class where students are encouraged to demonstrate their understanding of plant culture principles by growing, nurturing, marketing and selling plants they have grown in the NHS student-run enterprise, The Greenery. Therefore, a student who takes a semester of Greenery will receive a 1/2 credit towards the 3 Science credits required for graduation and a 1/2 credit towards an elective in Fine & Applied Arts. Greenhouse and outdoor activities will reinforce classroom instruction. Students are responsible for designing, installing and maintaining campus landscapes and interior-scapes and providingscientifically-based plant care services throughout the school.
