AG Classes are Rocking and Rooting

(9/15): Time for Ag EPISODE 6: Rocking and Rooting
Mrs. Whitworth and Ms. Swain's AG classes are rooting out the roots of bushes that were in the flower bed in front of the office and Math classrooms. These bushes were cut down last year by the maintenance team in order for the AG classes to put down garden fabric and rock! They will create a container garden there with raspberries, muscadines, blueberries, sage, rosemary and other seasonal plants and veggies. B&B Concrete is donating the rock, and Poe Brothers is helping with the delivery of the rock. We have a wonderful community to help our Warriors of Distinction. Until the next episode....AG is rocking and rooting!
