San Francisco’s Sanchez Elementary School will officially open some cool green amenities Wednesday: A new “green lab” and “vertical garden.”
The green lab contains a weather station, solar panels and other tools for scientific research, the San Francisco Unified School District said.
The vertical garden uses an 8-foot chain-link fence to grow vegetables, it said. The garden uses aquaponic technology and is powered by renewable energy.
The official opening will take place at 9 a.m. at the school, which is located at Sanchez and 16th streets.
Funds for the garden and lab were provided by SF Slow Food, Wells Fargo, Epic Roots, and Inka Biosperhic Systems, the district said.
