Read the article about your high school greenhouse. Congratulations to students and community for recognizing such an important resource for learning. Your greenhouse looks to be about ten times the size of my high school's and will provide a vast array of opportunities to explore plants and develop a greater understanding of our dependence on growing greenery. Kudos to Ms. Perkins !! Tim Balduff, Alumni, Perkins High School, '68
