Kudos ~ Moss Haven Farm




Students at the nonprofit Moss Haven Farm urban school garden in grades K trough 12 got a treat on October 19, when several very large vegetables they grew were installed as metal sculptures on campus; works of art created by welding students and faculty from the Cedar Valley College Bill J. Priest Institute. The larger-than-life, colorful representations of broccoli, a carrot, a potato and more will serve as a daily reminder of what youngsters can grow.

Taught by “Farmer Kim” Aman, youngsters get hands-on experience growing food and working together in the urban school garden, which is part of Moss Haven Elementary School, in the Richardson Independent School District.

Location: 9202 Moss Farm Lane, Dallas. For more information, call 214-860-5880 or visit MossHavenFarm.org.
