Did you know that you might be eating Troy Howard Middle School’s (THMS) garden’s greens? We have harvested a lot of greens this winter inside the greenhouse. We have planted many different greens like spinach and swiss chard. The THMS garden project has been harvesting greens and packaging them to send to the Belfast Co-op and the school kitchen twice a week. If you have been to the Co-op lately you might have bought some of our own organic greens. The students have advertised our garden produce at the Co-op to help increase sales.
If you stop by the school for a visit, you can see some of the achievements we have made since the beginning of the year. For example, we went to the Common Ground Fair this year, and won all first places except for one contest. Everyone worked really hard, growing the vegetables and watering them so they would be nice and healthy to help people get better nutrition in their food.
We have had many compliments on the vegetables that we have grown. So why not stop by the Co-op or the school greenhouse to see our vegetables and try them for your next meal!
