Harvesting for the Needy

This week at the Fast Food Farm we are Harvesting for the Needy.  As part of the Fast Food Farm project the Ag Science classes and the Pro-Start classes plant seeds in late summer and early fall on 15 rows.  Once a week the Ag Science students care for the plants until it is time for harvest.  What perfect timing for harvest, just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.   This week we harvested 90 family bags of broccoli, green beans, turnips, peas, corn, and lettuce and donated to the St. Vincent de Paul for the Thanksgiving baskets for the Needy.
