Produce Education Coming to Headland Middle School

By  | 

Although school is out for the summer, school administrators are already preparing for what students will learn during the upcoming school year.

On Tuesday at Headland Middle School, agriculture and school officials unveiled two tunnel houses that will be used to grow produce.

The houses will have fresh vegetables during the entire school year. It is a program they say will get students motivated to eat healthy and think about careers in farming.

"We're going to incorporate it into our science mainly, we also have family and consumer classes here, and incorporate that and let the teachers get the students out we're going to work with out agriculture students here in headland and let them come through and do some education, and hopefully the second phase of it would be the food produced here would go into our lunchroom,” said Kevin Sanders.

The houses were paid for by a state grant of $5,000.
