I was quite impressed with the article on farming and the winning entry that Cathryn Thompson submitted.
This is a most positive and enlightening topic for so many of the young people who do not know what grows or is raised on a farm.
I wonder if field trips to a farm for the elementary children would help them understand how the cycle of food production occurs, instead of trips to the mall where they only look and shop.
I hope to see more of these educational and informative topics in the future. This is a great example of the work and dedication this young lady has and her further studies in this field is just commendable.
