UMO FFA Student Help Carver Thrid Graders Understand the Importance of Agriculture
Carver Elementary School third graders were treated to an Ag Awareness Day at the University of Mount Olive. The event was sponsored, planned, organized, and carried out by the University’s Collegiate FFA members. The event featured twelve different agricultural education stations including seed germination and plant growth, soybean production, Goodness Grows in NC, NC Forest Service of Wayne County, North Carolina Pork Council, Small Grain Growers, Sensory Safari, a bee station and more.
Students had the chance to shake hands and dance with various fruit and vegetable characters, milk a simulated cow, and ride in a pickle train, made by UMO Ag education major Ryan Berglund and other CFFA members. After lunch students were treated to an informative presentation and magic show dubbed “AgriCadabra.”
