W.W. Moore



Post-D Program

     In the Post-D Program at W. W. Moore, residents focus on horticulture and culinary arts. This past
summer they grew vegetables for the first time. A bumper crop of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers
and string beans grew from the seeds started in the greenhouse from the spring. Plans are being
made to expand the vegetable gardening with more varieties in the summer. The students have
also held a mum plant sale and they are working on the poinsettia sale for December.

      Residents used the vegetables to prepare dishes in the kitchen. Several times, fresh tomatoes were
made into spaghetti sauce. In addition to gaining cooking experience, residents have the opportunity
to earn the National Restaurant Association’s ServSafe ® Food Handler Certificate. To date a
total of 9 students have received this certificate.
