LCHS EcoVision and Agriculture classes year end celebration

EcoVision and Agriculture Classes celebrated their Aquaponics, Agriculture and Beekeeping programs

Lacombe Composite High School EcoVision and Agriculture Classes recently celebrated their Aquaponics, Agriculture and Beekeeping programs for the 2017-2018 year.

This year the students built an Education aquaponics system that demonstrates the use of four different aquaponics systems.

The Agriculture program has planted/prepared 50 raised vegetable beds, over 100 potatoes hills, and 10 herb gardens.

The 12 Beekeeping students have successfully taken care of 6 hives and completed the Green Certificate Beekeeping course which offers them 16 high school credits.

Community members interested in the Adopt a Garden Program, take care of area of the gardens for about 1/2 hour a week and in return they get to harvest vegetables and fruit all summer, participate in free workshops and contribute to the future of our agriculture programs since our funding is depending on community collaboration.

Community members interested can email Steven Schultz at
