Farm & Garden Program
Students have many opportunities to get hands-on experience with our farm and garden program. Students plant a large garden each spring and work in the garden all summer long. Produce goes on the salad bar. We also can pickles and tomatoes from the garden. Salsa and tomato sauce is also made and canned. Promise Academy also has a greenhouse that the New Providence community also uses. Students have opportunities to learn about cattle and goats. There are future plans to have a chicken coop. Those interested can join 4-H and show small animals if desired. Promise Academy also utilizes Iowa State University for additional learning opportunities in the ag/farm area.
