Rick Swanson is without a doubt the most powerful administrator that I have ever met.  He is not related to me.  Instead of using the administrative line, “I’m not sure we can do that”, he figures out a way to empower students and provides resources.   The students’ environmental work at the school is an inspiration.   He sent me this TED talk that is must see.   http://www.ted.com/talks/ron_finley_a_guerilla_gardener_in_south_central_la?language=en#t-618543

Please get back to me and make suggestion of what we can do.

At Hingham High School where Mr. Swanson works, they compost cafeteria waste, cardboard food trays and more.
