Dani MendellHello! I’m Dani Mendell, and I’m a rising junior at North Oconee High School in Watkinsville, Georgia. I am so excited to be part of the leadership team for the Project Green Schools Youth Council! This is my second year at PGS. In my new role as Outreach Coordinator, I hope to bring an enthusiastic and positive perspective. I am passionate about working together with people of all abilities to help the environment. In 2020, I started the North Oconee EcoClub at my high school. This past year, I wrote and received a grant for the Hydroponic Heroes project, where EcoClub members work with special education students at North Oconee to grow and maintain a hydroponic garden. This semester we are growing baby tomatoes, jalapeños, sweet peppers, butterhead lettuce, arugula, thyme, and mint!
I am looking forward to working with and learning from other PGS Youth Council members this year!
