G.W. Long Students are getting hands-on learning experience.
County officials and school administrators officially opened the tunnel house today.
A tunnel house is an outdoor extension of the classroom.
Students can learn how crops are grown and maintained.
"Not only do we get to learn science and how things grow but we get to watch it as it happens every day. And whenever the plants start growing we can bring elementary schools down here and teach them about plant and food production," said Clay Tew and Alexis Watkins, G.W. Long FFA.
The state "RC&D" council and Tuskegee University are also helping with the installation of the tunnel house.
