Farm to School Grant
Through the USDA, Greenup Co. ATC received a grant to start a program that would allow students to raise fruits and vegetables on the school grounds that could be used in the schools cafeteria. As part of this grant a new greenhouse has been purchased and will be built in the near future. A tractor was also purchased to use in the gardens. The grant was also used to buy irrigation supplies for the green house and gardens. The greenhouse will be a 30' x 96' plastic greenhouse like the one pictured below. The start of the construction has yet to be determined.
