About SGW

We show how “teaching green” can be fun — in schools, special events, workshops, the Newton Library, the Farmers Market and more! Some of what we do:

  • Create and coordinate kids’ programs and activities
  • Environment-related projects for NewtonSERVES
  • Help represent Green Newton at Newton city events and village festivals
  • Write articles for the Green News or your school newspaper
  • Greening Our Community program in May – an all-student presentation by SGW and guest students from Newton schools!
  • Partner with Newton Community Farm, the library, Newton Unplugged and Connected and other organizations


SGW meets monthly September – June. We’re from all 4 middle schools and both high schools in Newton as well as private schools. Kids under 12 can also volunteer with us as SGW interns at events and the Farmers Market.
