Student spent Thursday afternoon loading and unloading boxes for the 30th annual Student Hunger Drive!

Watch video footage of KWQC’s coverage of our Urban Farm Ground Breaking – click on the picture below:
Initially the Environmental Science Club looked into the global bee crisis and did extensive research on various plants that would attract bees and other pollinators. After a lot of planning, MCHS broke ground on Nov. 2nd for the Urban Farm Project. Our generous supporters – John Deere and P & K Midwest – attended the ground breaking. This farm will include berries, raised garden beds with a variety of vegetables as well as plots of land for winter wheat, rye, and sweet corn. Students are envisioning other items in the future including a small orchard for fruit trees. Mid City students will use this farm project to learn about sustainable living, nutrition, and our local environment. They will also learn the importance of growing their own food and plan on using the harvest to feed those in need in the community.
