You may not know it, but Kitty Hawk Middle School has a class of students that are learning the principles of agriculture. Mr. Rumfield has been working with them on of the basics of growing plants and it's serving a two-fold purpose. The students are developing a green thumb while the campus gets better and better looking with the landscaping getting attention.
Landscaped areas can be a real job just keeping them maintained with controlling and pulling weeds and keeping the plants from getting overgrown. Nothing like a little sweat equity to keep your campus looking good while learning at the same time.
Hopkins Elementary’s youngest students got to meet some in experts in the field of dairy farming and horticultural science. Concepts like seeds and the process of germination...the importance of fresh water for plants…or where milk comes from and how does it get from the farm to the table are just a sample of what they saw and learned. The school may have some future farmers on their hands soon.
