Lawrence to Launch a Farm to School and Community Garden Program at Free State High School

Plans are under way for a community and school garden project at Free State High School.

The unique partnership involving school officials, Free State High ag students, parents, K-State Research and Extension, a local chef, a grocery chain and other community members began to take shape in June.

The project will include plots for members of the community as well as a garden managed by the school's ag ed students. Students will also operate a farmers market and sell garden produce to the school's cafeteria.
