Mosside Middle School, Monroeville, PA

Judy Bailey of the NAACP and Sustainable Monroeville, and Elisa Beck of Sustainable Monroeville partnered to do a presentation for students in six sixth grade classrooms at Mosside Middle School (MMS) today. We talked about the meaning of Sustainabilty as encompassing the triad including economy, social justice and environmentalism. We asked these young adults if they had ever heard of either organization, and how many of them had vegetable gardens. We encouraged them to come to our meetings with their parents, grandparents, and guardians, and get involved in community projects. We also challenged them to talk to us through facebook if they are allowed to do so, and by e-mailing to

Let the conversation and action begin! Thanks Pam Barroso a parent at MMS and a Sustainable Monroeville member for skillfully organizing this event. We are on the road to Monroeville becoming a proud Transition Community!
