Pine Tree Academy (PTA) is developing an agriculture program. Grades 5 and 6 have been a part of the program over the last 3 years. Mr. Krueger shared with the students all about hard-necked garlic, a crop that is planted in the fall up north. The students helped divide the bulbs into separate cloves. Then, they planted the garlic in the raised beds behind the school. Approximately 2,000 cloves were planted (6 varieties). Thanks to Ms. Moore and her students for continuing to make agriculture a part of the school program.
