In High School they can take agriculture 1, 2, and 3. Courses can be taken at a community college for a two-year program in business management.

I am confident that everything that I was able to learn during my time interning at CHP is going to served me, as I will be coming out of this experience with more guidance on where I want to take my career along with valuable skills.

    Some foods may be region specific, which are important to consider when developing your own farm/garden. Also, it would have been interesting if they noted any foods that did not do so well in their garden, either for climate reasons or due to tastes of the area. It is important to know your audience when planting different sorts of produce. In addition, I feel like a student perspective may have been helpful in the article. The piece mentions how a big goal of the farm is to educate young minds about sustainable farming, but I wish they would have included more personal testimonies from the students about what they have learned from Book and Plow.…

    We have farm supplies which I know quite a bit about since I grew up on a farm, but the main reason I wanted to work there is because they are a lot of construction companies that come into our store. When I'm older I have thoughts about going into that field so I thought that it would be a great idea if I worked at a hardware store. Just in the 2 years I have been working there it has helped me out so much, I have learned a lot about tools and which product is the right one to use for a certain application. I really like the job and it is a great learning experience for me and will help me out in the future. I plan to continue to work there throughout high school.…

    How can one person in a perfectly normal functioning family lose his mind out of nowhere? He plays a large role and causes many characters to change in A Thousand Acres by Jane Smiley throughout most of the story. The book started off very slowly because it just described the setting and talked about all the people in Zebulon County living their normal lives. I could relate to this because I live in an area that is similar to Zebulon County on a farm just like the setting in the book. I also knew what the author was talking about when she described the farming equipment and what was happening with the corn.…
