WEST JORDAN — Copper Hills High School students may soon be able to grow their own school lunches.
A 1,500-square-foot greenhouse is being built at Copper Hills High. Alongside it, a botany, science and horticulture classroom is going in for students who want to study in those fields.
Nutrition services is also looking at the greenhouse as an opportunity to teach young men and women about the importance of growing food and tracking everything that food is exposed to from ground to table.
The goal is, once the home-grown greenhouse products are harvested, they can be used as fresh produce in preparing some school lunches.
