The brand new Life Skills program greenhouse is having a grand opening on the Bend High campus this morning.  The Life Skills Program Coordinator, Robert Tadjiki says the greenhouse will have multiple uses, and various departments will use the facility, but it's mainly for the Life Skills kids to learn how to grow plant and market them.  "We'll work with our award-winning Culinary Department and we'll work with our Business Department through DECA, and will work with the school district and Nutritional Services. And of course our Science Department, which will be able to do a lot of hands-on activities. They will find out how amazing it is to work in a greenhouse and work with plants through biology and all these good areas as well. It’s just amazing and a win-win for everyone." Tadjiki says the students will raise flowers, herbs and other greenery that they will sell to the public, as well as for use in local restaurants and even the school district kitchens.  He says it's taken five years for greenhouse to become a reality, and it couldn't have happened without the community's support.  The supporter’s will be honored at the official ribbon cutting this morning at 10 am.  The public is invited.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
