Wynn Las Vegas works with Green Our Planet, a nonprofit conservation organization that brings experiential learning through outdoor garden classrooms to student attending local Title I schools, which are defined by having more than 40 percent of students come from low-income families. Wynn Resorts sponsors Green our planet has enabled the organization to build four outdoor garden classrooms that impact more than 4,000 students in the Las Vegas area.
Weekly garden workshops immerse students in science, technology, engineering ,art and mathematics (STEAM) education through the real-world application of growing local produce. The outdoor gardens give students and their teachers opportunities outside of traditional classroom garden. Students also learned about nutrition to complement their growing efforts in the gardens.
Wynn's involvement beyond monetary investments, with employees also supporting the local missions. Professional Chefs from the resorts have held cooking demonstrations for students using fresh produce from the garden classrooms that emphasize health and wellness through a balanced diet. Wynn employee volunteers have also helped maintain and expand gardens at each of the schools.
