THE AG STUDIES PROGRAM SERVES ABOUT 80 STUDENTS EACH YEAR AND IS ONE OF MORNINGSIDE’S FASTEST GROWING PROGRAMS.

THERE’S A QUICK TIMETABLE TO GET THE FORMER SCHOOL TAKEN DOWN AND THE NEW FACILITY PUT IN PLACE:

THE ROSEN AG CENTER AND LAGS GREENHOUSE WILL ALSO OPEN THE DOOR TO PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES WITH OTHER EDUCATION ORGANIZATIONS, FROM K-12, AREA TWO-YEAR COLLEGES, AND OTHER NONPROFITS, AS NO ONE IN THE AREA CURRENTLY HAS ACCESS TO A GREENHOUSE OR TEST PLOTS.
