Grant allows Rocky Comfort Elementary students to seed 10,000 plants

MCDONALD COUNTY, Mo. – Agriculture students at Rocky Comfort Elementary will seed 10,000 plants thanks to a grant from Walmart.

Agricultural Teacher Elizabeth Wilkinson said the following about the annual event:

“The big shipment [of seeds] is quite a sight to see.” Wilkinson said. “My kids are hard-working and really good at what they do. It is really loud and chaotic while planting all these seeds, but we have a blast.”

Wilkinson says students will look over the seedlings for a few weeks until they are available for purchase at the school’s annual plant sale. Money raised from the sale goes to help with school improvement projects.
