EFNEP Educator, Chrissy Barbrey, was part of the amazing team in Halifax County that worked together to provide education and technical assistance to a group of students at a local high school. This is a great example of how Cooperative Extension teams can work together to make greater impacts to improve the lives and health of our communities!

After students completed the new EFNEP high school pilot curriculum, Fuel for Life, with Chrissy Barbrey, the Empowerment Zone Coordinator expressed interest in expanding what the students learned by installing a learning garden. Chrissy connected them with Steps to Health where they were able to secure approximately $500 worth of garden materials and supplies for four raised beds. The FCS Agent, Horticulture Agent, and Agriculture Agent partnered to provide assistance and education to get the gardens started and to ensure success. The students at the Empowerment Zone learned how to put together raised beds, plant seeds, care for the plants, and were able to see the results of their hard work from project-based learning.
