Students growing in the classroom can now help plants do the same at a new greenhouse and storage facility at Algoma High School. It might be the most significant improvement Algoma School District added over the summer, which also included new equipment for its cafeteria kitchen. Middle/High School teacher Penny Lemberger is credited with helping other horticultural initiatives grow like the district’s community garden. Superintendent Nick Cochart says there are plenty of positives from the new addition.
The district has also partnered with Eastshore Industries to allow some of their clients to help care for the community garden. Algoma School District children head back to class on Tuesday.
