Update on construction of MHHS Agricultural Greenhouse

Thursday, February 7, 2019

The Mountain Home High School Agriculture Program has received grants and donations from the community of Mountain Home to build a greenhouse.

The greenhouse is 60x30 feet and will be used by agriculture students in the new class, Introduction to Agriculture Plant Industry, taught by the Agriculture teacher, Kya Vines.

Plants will be grown and cared for by the students before being sold in May of 2020 to community members.

The Greenhouse concrete was donated by Elmore County Farm Bureau and Idaho Materials and Construction. Gravel was donated by Dodge Boys Excavation. The Concrete was poured by Bideganeta Construction Inc.

The Mountain Home High School Agriculture Program would like to give a special thanks to Bideganeta Construction Inc. for all of their hard work and dedication throughout this project.

During Vines’ free time she built the frame of the building with the help of her family.

“Building the greenhouse was only made possible by the support of the community.” said Vines. For the full story, pick up a copy of the Mountain Home News or click on this link to subscribe to the newspaper's online edition.
