Sumter County Middle School FFA Constructs School Garden
Sumter County Middle School Agriculture student and Future Farmers of America (FFA) member Cameron Mercer is shown adding the finishing touches to raised bed plantings in the school garden. Mr. Brock’s Agriculture classes hosted visiting students who assisted in planting their own seeds. They also shared about the mission to fight food insecurity by promoting self-sufficiency. Agricultural students were assisted by several local businesses (Tractor Supply Co, Reed Irrigation, 13th Colony Distillery, & Georgia Power) in designing and building seating arrangements, raised beds, and work stations for the young learners.
