The Farm At Florence One Officially Opened With A Ribbon Cutting

The Florence One School District has been incorporating farm-to-school programs into its education for years, but on Thursday, the district began a new chapter in agriculture education.

The agricultural and culinary education center known as The Farm at Florence One officially opened with a ribbon cutting before the district’s Board of Trustees meeting.

The center has been a dream for farm-to-school coordinator Jeff Murrie, who spoke at the ribbon cutting and the board meeting about the farm.

“This site will be the catalyst to bring about many new opportunities to the students of Florence One Schools,” he said. “This truly has been a passion project and will be a legacy for all involved.”
