2023 Henry County Farm Fest
The Paris NRCS & Henry County SWCD had a great time at the 2023 Farm Fest and Lakewood Farm Fest. Around 400 fifth & sixth grade students from Inman, Harrelson and Henry schools attended the Farm Fest at the Henry County Fairgrounds. Each student was gifted a Henry County SCD backpack full of goodies. We also enjoyed the Lakewood School Farm Fest which was open to all Lakewood students.
We are always grateful for the opportunity to teach students about agriculture & conservation.
Henry SWCD awards grant for HCHS Hydroponics Project
Recently, the Henry Co SWCD awarded HCHS an educational grant for a new hydroponics project for HCHS students. Hydroponics is the process of growing plants in a nutrient solution and water, instead of soil.
The project is off to a great start, and we can't wait to receive future updates & photos from HCHS/FFA students & staff.
