FOA Student Featured in Edible Upcountry Ad

The Winter 2012 edition of “Edible Upcountry” contains great articles on South Carolina foods as well as our most recent ad featuring one of our Middle School students, Carson Barber. Carson appears in the premier ad on our sustainable gardening project that includes raising our FOA chickens. Our organic chicken coup came to the campus this fall and is a middle school project that integrates our chickens into many aspects of the curriculum for each classroom level. Please pick up a copy of Edible upstate in the office or go

We would like to thank Carson’s dad, Dustin Barber, who designed and crafted a bench that has been placed beside our chicken coop. This bench provides our students a suitable place to observe the coop and to watch chicken life.
