Agricultural Awareness

Many students are unaware of the science of agriculture and its effects on citizens and society. This project will involve a great deal of collaboration and communication between students at all levels. We are a farming community and students will be learning skills to help them transition into a paying job if they choose. Students will be learning how to take are of goats on the school farm and learn the skills necessary for producing their own food. They will learn how to preserve their food as well as be a productive team member. Running a farm takes good communication, teamwork and collaboration skills. The will present their work at the local Heritage Day and at an open house event at K-12.
