Ep. 21 – Sheep, rabbits and turkeys OH MY! – How agriculture is a growing trend in schools

Inside schools we are used to seeing students learning in classrooms, laboratories or gymnasiums, but in the recent years some classrooms are turning into barns, greenhouses and grazing fields. Why may you ask? Agriculture, that’s why. A growing trend is taking our students outside to see all the different ways our world grows when it comes to plants, animals and more! For this episode, our Superintendent, Dr. Mike Swan joins us as we visit East Burke High School’s agriculture class to talk with student about the program. We might have even taken a stroll to the animal barn! Take a listen to hear first-hand from students as to why this class is growing in popularity.
