Greenhouse teaches more than horticulture

Two courses at Washington County High School are taking kids out of the classroom and letting them get their hands dirty – literally. 

The greenhouse and plant land science courses at WCHS are not only teaching students the fundamentals of growing tomatoes, bedding and hanging plants, but also the fundamentals of economics.
