Among the summertime happenings at Holyoke schools is continued progress on the district’s new greenhouse. Located at the southwest corner of the JR/SR high, the foundation has been poured and preparations continue so the site will be ready when the greenhouse kit is delivered. A Farmers Grow Rural Education grant sponsored by the Monsanto Fund provided $25,000 specifically for the Expanding Our Roots Greenhouse project. It was awarded in the fall of 2017 to the Holyoke FFA chapter. Additional funding was provided by the Re-1J Foundation and the Heginbotham Trust. — The Holyoke Enterprise | Johnson Publications
