Elementary students, teachers, and staff gathered yesterday to participate in the Elementary School’s groundbreaking ceremony for a raised bed garden at the school. As part of the ceremony, local youth spoke about their inspiration for the project and the importance of learning to grow food.
The project is a collaboration between The Highland Center, Highland 4-H and Highland County Public Schools. Local Foods Coordinator Jessa Fowler and Extension Technician Paxton Grant will be coordinating garden care and educational opportunities for students.
Special thanks to High Mowing Organic Seeds, Native Lumber, and 4-H Council for their contributions to the project.
