Highland County High School's agriculture program is blooming.
Students and teachers revamped a forgotten-about greenhouse behind the school. The newly-finished greenhouse acts as a classroom and community center.
We're told groups from all over the Alleghany Highlands now come to the greenhouse to learn farming and nutrition.
Students who helped re-build the greenhouse say it needed a massive overhaul, one they're glad they made.
"The walls were caving in, they had big holes in the walls, the plastic was ripped, none of the boards was in here, those all rotted out. We had to rebuild everything, the whole foundation, and put the plastic back on," said Robert Moyers, President of the high school's Future Farmers of America chapter.
Students and community groups jointly received grant funding for the project.
