ALBION – Albion fourth-graders harvested squash this afternoon from the Land Lab on Clarendon Road that is used by the FFA and agriculture students.
The students planted the squash last spring when they were in third grade. Some of the students are pictured with Alexis Bentley, left, a member of the FFA.
About 40 bushels of squash were harvested and will be donated to Community Action of Orleans & Genesee.
