On 23 September 2018 The Associated Press reported: What once started out as a small garden behind the agriculture building at Rehobeth High School (Alabama) has grown -- just like the seedlings that were planted there -- in an effort across grade levels to serve the community. Brad Willis, agriscience teacher at the high school, said the effort to teach children where their food originates started about eight years ago in one of his classes. After the school board purchased more land behind the football team's practice field, the agriscience teacher quickly jumped on the opportunity to utilize the space to teach students the inner workings of creating produce. Without any equipment except for an old, rusted tiller and a few seeds, Willis and his students helped the agriculture department grow, one plant at a time. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of environment and education, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

Today, the program looks nothing like it did eight years ago, but its humble mission still remains at its core. The school's FFA program donates all of the goods to local shelters to feed families in need.

For many students with little background in agriculture other than a desire to help others, the class provides the perfect blend of hard work and dividends.
