Future Farmers of America chapters in Door and Kewaunee Counties are doing their part to bring agriculture to the classroom. Within the last few years, FFA and FFA Alumni and Supporters chapters have spearhead projects at Kewaunee, Luxemburg-Casco, and Sevastopol to upgrade greenhouse facilities and build animal labs. Luxemburg-Casco FFA Alumni President Matt Haen says kids do not know where their food comes from, and FFA clubs hope to change that by bringing the opportunities to them.
Haen says they are working with the school district to get a new, bigger facility built at Luxemburg-Casco this summer. The Kewaunee FFA recently turned their animal lab into a petting zoo in celebration of National FFA Week. Sevastopol’s new greenhouse will be part of the upcoming construction at the district’s buildings.
