The Honors Ag Sci class students have been busy all fall working on the new Green Elements Center. Environmental and ag science curriculum grants to our Ag-Ed Program from PP & L, Monsanto, PA DEP and McFEE were used to sponsor the construction and planting of the “Living Roof’ , a solar panel, a wind turbine and green energy teaching equipment. The supplier of the Sedum plants for the roof, Creek Hill Nursery in Manheim, gave our students horticulture industry training on installing the trays.
