Growing Bolder in Barrow

The Barrow Farm to School Booster Club (Growing Bolder in Barrow) was established by Barrow County School Nutrition and the Barrow County Extension. The club is a group of volunteers from the community and school system providing support to our school gardens, classrooms, and cafeterias.

The Nutrition Department held a contest for students to design artwork for our booster club. Each school was to select their best design and submit it to the Nutrition Department. The artwork submitted was then voted on by staff. The winner for the best artwork is Gracelyn from Statham Elementary.
