Over the summer, students from the Extended School Year Program have been growing and caring for their own vegetables.  Students have been farming a piece of land on Isabella Rossellini’s farm with the assistance of Patty Gentry from “Early Girl Farm”. The students planted several different vegetables including potatoes, pumpkins and zucchini.  They will continue to maintain the farm in September, and along with the culinary classes at the high school, the students will learn to prepare meals with the vegetables they have grown.
