Earlier this year, NCAT Demonstration Farm Manager Sam Humphrey and FoodCorps Mississippi service member Kristin Lynch installed trellis nets for 3 large pallet garden beds at The Piney Woods School received from Johnny's Selected Seeds through The Mississippi Farm to School Network’s $500 grant for school gardens, awarded last semester.

The garden beds are being put to great use, in preparation for spring planting. Just this week, The Piney Woods School Ag-Business class helped to up-pot peppers and eggplants, and will be assisting NCAT staff with putting together CSA subscription boxes.
