Our HS Future Farmers Club started four years ago, with only 5 members. It has now grown to over 35. We do not offer agricultural courses, so our students seek practical experience to learn about farming, ecology and environmental protection.
FFC developed a school garden in 2013 and successfully managed it throughout the summer. A special event in the fall introduced the HS student population to the crops FFC harvested. Many of our students were unfamiliar with those vegetables and enjoyed the samples.
The school board approved additional space for the garden (close to 2.5 acres) for this growing season. FFC needs the tools, seeds and other supplies necessary to manage that expansion and continue their learning experience in farming. Annual estimated need is $500; in addition, the club needs to purchase garden machinery such as a tiller and cultivator, estimated at approximately $1,000.
