Georgia Farm Bureau Brings Ag in the Classroom to Pre-K
Bleckley Pre-K would like to say a HUGE thank you to Bleckley County Farm Bureau. They donated two raised beds to Pre-K. We appreciate Mr. Michael Porter delivering them and setting them up for us. Mrs. Sims, Mrs. Money, & Mrs. Goss’ class went out and added the soil to the beds. We are preparing the beds so that we will be able to plant after Thanksgiving holidays. We are very excited about this new experience here at Pre-K. We want to create an awareness of where our food comes from. Yes, you can go to the grocery store and buy it, but the question we want the students to answer is “Where did it come from before?” Through collaboration with Mrs. Lauren Goble from Farm Bureau and Mr. Michael Porter of Bleckley County Farm Bureau this opportunity was made possible. We are planning on having a Farm Day in early March. Ag in the Classroom is much more than being in the classroom reading stories about a farm or looking at pictures. To get the real experience, you must get your hands dirty!
