QUINCY, Fla. (WTXL) — Farming for the Future is keeping learning fun, even if the classrooms are closed.

On Tuesday the organization passed out science packets for students at Shanks Middle School in Quincy to get creative with.

Lessons in the packets walk them through growing their own food at home and helps them track their growth while away from school.

The Art coordinator for farming the future says this is a creative way to keep kids learning at home.

"So, everything is super easy and super convenient for them to make," said Sofia Villamizar, Farming for the Future executive teacher. "And, they get to make those connections that, you know, growing stuff isn't that hard and being a scientist is fun."

They are opening this up to all children and parents who want to participate. Just email to receive and download the packets and get growing.
