REED CITY — Excited and eager to learn, students from G.T. Norman Elementary swarmed about on Thursday, exploring the various ways plants are grown within the Biodome at Reed City High School.
“Our goal is to teach kids that anybody can grow their own plants, their own fruits and vegetables, and have them available as far as a healthy eating program,” said Brad Smith, Reed City High School science teacher. “You don’t have to go to the store; you don’t have to travel a long ways to do it. A lot of what we try to teach as well is that you don’t need commercial equipment to do it. You can use repurposed items.”
