DownCity Design 

Wow!  In 2011-2012, DownCity Design led a year-long AfterZone design/build studio at Nathan Bishop Middle School.

Using reclaimed pallet wood and repurposed storm win­dows, students learned to wield
power tools as they mastered basic construction techniques to complete the greenhouse.

The result is pretty cool! Check out the beautiful and functional greenhouse to be used for years to come by Nathan Bishop science teachers and students.
