Science Club Grows Food for Cafeteria

Science Club Grows Food for Cafeteria
Posted on 01/09/2024
Buchanan Elementary's Science Club Advisor, Mrs. Stull coordinated efforts with Mr. Painter at the Botetourt County 4-H Department to obtain four new hydroponics stations. Fourth graders and fifth graders in the club are in charge of planting, maintaining and harvesting their indoor crops. Once harvested, lettuce is sent to the school cafeteria to feed our students and faculty. For the last few years, troubles with produce deliveries caused dilemmas in the cafeteria and students in the science club hope that by providing an in-house solution we can continue to have nutritious salad options for our school!
Thank you, Mrs. Stull, Mr. Painter and our future agriculture and science leaders in the Buchanan Elementary Science Club!
