Students in the Agrilculture Department went to Davis Ranch- Helping Hands produce. Nineteen academy students and three teachers picked 3500 pounds of produce to be donated to the local food bank.

Students learned how to plant a variety of crops. They also learned how to tell when they are ripe and how to harvest them. Students got to pick their own mixed box of produce to take home that included: eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes, corn, watermelon and cantaloupe.

The best part was watching the students eat the produce in the fields and realizing that vegetables taste good. We were told many times by the students that this was the best field trip they've ever been on!
