Busy Year end for FFA

The greenhouse is one of the exciting new projects MHS has taken on recently. It has come a long way from its, pardon the pun, humble roots.

The Malad Chapter of the FFA is bringing a busy season to a close with a series of events.  The High School Ag students recently shared their knowledge with local elementary kids, and also hosted a vegetable sale.

Over 300 students attended the Elementary Ag day this year. High School Ag students and FFA members taught elementary students about animal identification, forestry, horses, pollination, the dairy industry, tractor safety, FFA, and 4H. They even visited the animal petting Zoo. Students got to make bird feeders, identify different types of wood, and learn about ear tagging and cattle branding by creating their own brand and custom ear tag. Students also sampled cheese and learned the importance of agriculture education in our community! 

Malad High School Greenhouse students hosted a vegetable sale this past week. Vegetables ranged from peppers and tomatoes to Brussels sprouts and pumpkins! There is something for every gardener. Students spend the school year learning about plant production, gardening, and plant identification. Their knowledge was tested by helping customers gather plants for their gardens. Next year Mrs. Evans and her students hope to grow bedding plants, hanging baskets, and more. The greenhouse program is growing and next year the sale will be even bigger!

Community members are encouraged to follow the "Malad FFA Chapter" on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date on next year's sales and all the program's activities!
