News from Homeplace on Green River

A group of students from Taylor County enjoyed a day at Homeplace on Green River Tuesday, November 15, 2016.

About 200 fourth grade students from Taylor County schools spent the day at Homeplace on Green River learning about the farm, the Green River Bridge, dam construction, and the importance of agriculture in our lives.

Homeplace has been recognized by Kentucky's Senate as "Kentucky's Outdoor Classroom" and has lived up to the name with a growing number of programs for area schools.

Lindsey Wilson College has also been active in using the farm as a classroom for many disciplines including art, biology, journalism and history.

The farm was first settled in 1804 and is being restored, mostly by volunteers from Adair, Green and Taylor counties. - George Kolbenschlag
