Growing Lunch

The Poplarville High School Career Development Center's five C.T.E. programs are working together on a container garden project.  
The project began with the Growing Lunch Grant through the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce.  The Agriculture Environmental Science and Technology students built the raised beds, mixed the potting soil, and filled the beds with the potting soil.  Culinary Arts students planted and are caring for the plants,will harvest and cook using the herbs and vegetables from the garden.  The Digital Media Technology students are making a video of the process. Health Science students are researching the health benefits of the herbs and vegetables, and the Marketing Class will market the excess herbs and vegetables to the school staff and community.  
This is an ongoing project and plans are being made to include winter vegetables and tomatoes in the greenhouse.
