ACA's First Organic Harvest!

Last week, our students had their first harvest, and was it bountiful! Students learned about the plant life cycle, they tested different variables and growing conditions. They didn't use any pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. Students and staff were able to take home baggies full of Arugula, Bibb and other salad bowl lettuces! Great job, students!
