Dillard Middle grows greens for guinea pigs

8th graders at Dillard Middle School provided fresh tendergreens to feed pet guinea pigs from their first harvest of the school year. The microgreens were grown in class using water bottles and other common materials as part of the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) program.
