Seventh-graders at Troy A. Howard Middle School in Belfast take part in the eigh
Seventh-graders at Troy A. Howard Middle School in Belfast take part in the eight-year-old Garden Project, an integrated learning experience. Each student interviews for a position and keeps it for the remainder of the year. History, economics, and agriculture teacher Steve Tanquay runs the program, which Don White, a former agriculture coordinator for MSAD 34 helped start White's successor, Jon Thurston, runs a summer camp with Tanguay to maintain the garden, with its some 100 vegetable varieties. The harvest goes to the school lunch program, an onsite produce stand, or the Belfast co-op, keeping the award-winning program self-sufficient except for personnel costs.
