Special needs students hold plant sale at greenhouse they operate

Every week, you will find a group of happy teens, tending to their plants in a warm and humid greenhouse. The greenhouse is being operated by SCD (Significant Cognitive Disabilities) students in the Community Skills/Life Skills program at Harrison Central High School. They took over the project in January, from cleaning out the old greenhouse to purchasing the supplies. The project has since blossomed, thanks to support from the Millsaps Mississippi Council on Developmental Disabilities, The Home Depot and parents. The Harrison County Soil & Water Conservation District recently came to observe the greenhouse and gave the class a $300 gift card for use at The Home Depot. These special needs students are learning skills that will help them in life and possibly a future career. All the proceeds from the plant sale will help support the students' weekly field trips.
