Ky. School for Deaf breaks ground on garden

DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky School for the Deaf has broken ground on a garden and research center at the campus in Danville.

The Advocate-Messenger reports it has been about four decades since students at the school last work the land.

Student Bethany Yance, a sophomore who serves as vice president of the school's Future Farmers of America chapter, called the move "a dream come true."

School officials say students will use the 23 acres to grow produce such as corn, potatoes and strawberries.

The garden was made possible by an FFA grant to address local hunger needs. Items from the garden will be dispersed to the school's cafeteria, local food banks and community organizations.
