0322farm4
Lanier Charter Career Academy students gather behind the school Friday for a ribbon cutting of the new Farm at the Oaks development coming soon to the school.

Officials, school leaders and students celebrated Farm at the Oaks, a new farmers market at Lanier Charter Career Academy, at a Friday ceremony.

The school received a $25,000 grant, distributed by SkillsUSA and Lowe’s through its Toolbox for Education program, for the development of a horticulture program and eventually a working farm on the land behind the school. The food, planned to be certified organic, will be sold to teachers and students with the idea of opening the farmers market to the community at select times of the year.
