The HS Agriculture Construction class, led by Mr. Tom Wesle, tackled an educational and profitable woodworking project. 60+ cedar planter boxes were cut, assembled, and sold with the profit benefitting the Luck FFA.
The Harvest Garden is yielding a variety of vegetables! During the summer, the fresh produce is delivered to our local food shelf, and during the school year it will be used in the cafeteria.
