The ProStart program at Albany High School, taught by Maegan Howes, planted vegetable plants last month.

The class planted the vegetables to learn about farming and harvesting on a smaller scale, a news release from the school said. The class also wanted to become self-sufficient, the release said.

The students working on the project are Cheyenne Landry, Shelby Moore, Kari’gan Kinchen, Kadie Armstrong, Daiana Hernandez, Larissa Reed, Mallory Lewis, Kassidy Lemons, Denver Strain, Amari Johnson, Greg Hammon, Trey Oliphant and Joseph Walters.

Albany High’s ProStart program is in its inaugural year, the release said.
