We are super proud of Mrs. Kincaid's Landscape Management class for their continued hard work with the WACC Courtyard project. They are now working on putting pea gravel down in the walkways and will soon start planting items for their edible garden. We can't wait to watch their progress this spring! Great job students!!
It's beginning to look a lot like Spring Time in Landscape Management class! Mrs. Kincaid's students have been busy this week planting trees in the Career Center courtyard. We appreciate their hard work in helping to make this area so beautiful!
