For the Love of Agriculture

Wheeler County Extension provided agricultural education through a Farm Day at Wheeler County Elementary School on May 5, 2015. Students learned about forestry, Georgia commodities (including dairy, peanuts, wheat, poultry, cotton, and Vidalia onions), seed identification, livestock, and connecting the farm to their forks. In collaboration with Georgia Department of Agriculture – Agricultural Commodity Commission for Milk, Georgia Forestry Commission, Georgia Farm Bureau, Montgomery County Extension and local volunteers, the event was a huge success.
