Mentone Elementary School Getting Greenhouse

As fewer students grow up in an agricultural setting, it becomes increasingly important for children to learn at an early age where their food comes from.  A greenhouse will soon be built on the Mentone Elementary School campus thanks to generous donations by the North Central Co-op and Niff-tone.  The greenhouse will serve as a valuable learning ground for growing flowers and greenery as well as fruits and vegetables for snacks.  Building a greenhouse at Mentone Elementary School was the idea of Ashley DuBois, teacher of the Mentone Kindergarten Readiness Center.
