WHAT IS YOUR PASSION? My passion is teaching our youth as well as adults at times about the importance of agriculture. This time of the year ends my nine months of fulfilling my passion. My year starts with the beginning of the spring season and ends with the end of the fall season in teaching about “Where Does Your Food Come From?”
At the Fast Food Farm the youth become physically involved in the growing process of their food.
Through hands-on activities they learn how the weather affects the plants, and what happens to the food when it leaves the farm. They also learn about food nutrition, food preparation, and food processing.
In working with the Ag Science students throughout the school year I have seen them grow in leadership and character to become leaders in our community. At the Fast Food Farm students learn how to respect the land as they discover how to cultivate and prepare the soil for planting.
Throughout the nine months over 5000 students are learning about “Where Does Your Food Come From?” It is so rewarding to see our youth connect to the soil, plants, animals, and the source of their foods.
