Kudos & kindness: Thank you for making Farm Day successful
I would like to thank the many people that helped to make our fourth annual Farm Day an amazing success on Sept. 20! Thank you to AG in the Classroom for providing an outstanding program.
I would like to give special thanks to Camp Richardson for the generous donation of their site, Lake Tahoe Education Foundation for funding, the LTUSD maintenance staff, The Chimayo Street Grill for providing the delicious lunches, and the over 85 incredible presenters and volunteers from both STEEC, South Lake Tahoe and El Dorado — including many FFA (Future Farmers of America) students from Douglas County and El Dorado County.
LTUSD students got to rotate through 28 stations on such topics as forestry, nutrition, water, bees, composting and animals (including a calf, horses, chickens, rabbits, goats, sheep and a turkey). It was a great experience for so many students, and I am extremely grateful for all of the wonderful people who make this possible.
