Kingsbury High grows health and entrepreneurship with city’s first student-led farmers market

It’s 8 a.m. on a balmy Monday in July, but the team arriving at Kingsbury High School doesn’t need coffee to help waking up. They’ve got plenty of youth and passion to fuel them. These students are budding gardeners and entrepreneurs who are working this summer to launch Shelby County Schools' first farmers market organized and run by the students themselves. The coalition of organizers and educators advising the students hopes they learn what it takes to run a business and how they can begin addressing some of the greatest challenges in the Graham Heights community.
