The Crum PK-8 Agriculture Class is working on a fall garden. Students have harvested dirt from their compost, planted carrots in raised beds, and have seedlings growing. Tolsia High School students are plowing parts of the garden so fall crops can be planted. Agriculture is a wonderful way for students to learn with their mind and hands!
