Saluda - PCHS Farm
Posted May 7, 2013, 6:13 PM by Dave ScherpingTo kick-off Saluda Elementary's annual Read-a-thon, all students in grades PreK-5 visited the farm at Polk County High School. Students learned about the PCHS Agricultural Education program by rotating through stations led by students in Mr. Barber's 4th period Horticulture II class who taught them about the hands-on activities that teach the high schoolers about welding, animal science, carpentry, and horticulture. Elementary students were particularly interested in the school's goats, baby chicks and cow because the money raised from the Read-a-thon will be donated to Heifer International. Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth.
