LES and LHS receive indoor growing station

The Liberty Central School District is one of five Sullivan County schools that has been awarded a Healthy Community Initiatives Grant through Sullivan Renaissance to participate in a pilot program that “brings the outside in.”

Earlier last month, our elementary and high school received a GrowLab LED indoor growing station, seed starter kit, along with curriculum and activity books from Gardener’s Supply Company of Vermont.

High school teacher Mr. Kevin Ferguson recently completed a “trial run” using the growing station. He and his students successfully grew a large batch of pea shoots.

The pea shoots were grown without any fertilizer, chemicals or additives. Even better, they are going to be served at the school’s salad bar.
