Come out to Tessa on the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 17th and Wednesday, Jan. 18th to get your fill of these student grown greens.

1st Block students at Ragsdale High School harvested 5 bins in a single class as part of their Classroom to Food Pantry Pipeline (CFPP) with Hand to Hand Food Pantry sponsored by Sonya Hamilton State Farm.

This is a bit of feat for a class of 22 harvesting, cleaning, and reseeding the equivalent of seven 12 Bottle Portable Garden Bins (12BPG) because 4 of the 5 bins were the larger grey 18 Bottle Portable Garden Bins (18BPG) that each equal 1 1/2 12 BPG’s.

Parts of the harvest were filmed for an upcoming video to air on local television as part of a Gift of Giving Grant sponsored by the Four Seasons Town Centre.

Economy, Jr. shows students both sides of the economic coin with half of them playing as customers spending a month’s paycheck on necessities trying to avoid bankruptcy and the other half as merchants trying to sell enough to cover costs and post a profit.
