This week was a particularly exciting and rewarding week for me. I helped Corey (our Howdy Farm manager) create several raised beds to donate to a local elementary school. We had to screw two pieces of wood together and make four different walls that all fit together like a puzzle. It was fun getting to use power tools because that's not something that I often get to do. Plus, power tools are also fun.
I think teaching children about growing plants and vegetables is incredibly important and beneficial to their learning experience. In the future, I really would love to be an agriculture teacher so installing these raised beds was a rewarding experience. I hope that these kids enjoy horticulture as much as I do and that the teachers really utilize these to their fullest extent.
