County Technical High School put their training into practice at Potomac Center, a state residential center for adults with intellectual disabilities off Marshal Street in Hagerstown
Over two days in the middle of May, the students and their teacher, Steve Frame, planted a garden for Potomac Center residents. The project was to plant a salad bar for a family of 50. Residents will maintain the garden.
They also beautified the grounds by trimming bushes, pulling weeds and planting flowers.
