The lunches at Sturgeon Bay High School will be fresher from the beginning of school this year with the help of the new greenhouse. The Growing and Learning Lab opened in late 2018 and has been highly successful, according to Superintendent Dan Tjernagel. He says the organic nature of the fresh foods being grown is beneficial in multiple ways.
Tjernagel credits Food Service Director Jenny Spude with working with students in utilizing the greenhouse lab to realize environmental and fiscal benefits to the school district. The school year begins next Tuesday for most area students.
