Damascus Middle School Agriscience Students are involved in Garden Project!

Students pose next to a raised bed.Students in Mrs. Mary Rhudy’s eighth-grade Agriscience class recently created a raised-bed garden near the outdoor classroom.  The students learned that, although most vegetable gardening is done during the spring and summer, some vegetables are hardy late-season growers!  

With this knowledge in mind, the students prepared the soil in their new raised beds and planted cabbages and radishes.  Watering the plants every other day has been an enjoyable task so far, thanks to the nice weather we have had this fall, and the students are looking forward to sampling their crops when they are ready.  This project is just one way these students will learn valuable hands-on skills related to Agriscience.
