FFA Students: Help Maintain Their Future

Help me give my students a string trimmer and line so they may learn self dependence and pride of ownership as they maintain their land lab facility.

My Students

Students in my program are active members of the National FFA, a leadership organization for youth enrolled in agriculture education. Although they live in a major city, their experiential learning environment allows them first-hand exploration of the science of plant and animal production.

Learning to Do, Doing to Learn, Earning to Live, Living to Serve: this is the motto by which my students pursue their education.

They are passionate, intelligent young individuals driven to become productive members of our society.

My Project

Our school land lab facility offers students the opportunity to grow their own plants and animals in the middle of a large city, an experience most could not otherwise have. Our students raise cattle, swine, sheep, goats, poultry, and plants through their Supervised Agriculture Experience projects right here on our campus!

Through raising plants and animals, our students learn personal accountability, time management, and commitment; these are skills necessary for career success.

Part of the responsibility of owning these projects is maintaining the facility. Unfortunately, our students do not have all of the tools necessary to do so effectively.

The string trimmer and line are needed for our students to properly manage their land lab. With the proper tools, our students will gain a sense of ownership and the self efficacy that comes with pride in one's accomplishments.
