Farm to Table Program Offers New Hands-on Learning Opportunity
Many years ago, students at The King’s Academy (known then as Harrison-Chilhowee Baptist Academy) worked on the campus farm after school. Now, during the 2016-2017 school year, students in the intermediate grades will be carrying on the tradition, working with Farm to Cafeteria Director David Hamilton. Orientation to the program was held on Friday, August 12, at the school’s greenhouse and garden. Students toured the facilities and discussed possible jobs that the students will complete each school day, including planting, weeding, harvesting, and caring for chickens and tilapia. Students and teachers alike are excited about the new program, giving the students the opportunity to both learn new skills and serve others in the process.
