The Boston-based television show, Chronicle, filmed the sustainable garden this week for an upcoming show, Koutroubas said. It was not announced when that segment will be aired.

The AHS green team has also made sure the school stays healthy with recycling issues. Styrofoam trays have been replaced with biodegradable trays throughout town schools after the Green Team requested it.

“We are working hand-in-hand with the the town and reminding our kids about the importance of recycling,” Koutroubas said.

Those biodegradable trays are being collected for recycling, said Sandy Gerraughty, Public Works business manager.

“Our plan is to start with the high school and then roll out a successful way to collect those trays in every school...It’s costly and no one has this in their budget, so it’s slow now,” Gerraughty said. “But it will be slow, smart and then successful. We are committed

to this.”
