FFA Corn Maze- October 19th, 2019

The Killingly FFA held its annual corn maze on October 19th.  The proceeds (both money and donated goods) are all brought to the Assissi Food pantry to help feed those in need.  Children that went through the corn maze learned more about many different aspects of agriculture, and got a free pumpkin at the end.  We had over 50 high school volunteers to make this event such a success!

Fun in the Soil!

Horticulture 2 students have been learning about soil science and how it affects crop growth. In these photos students were learning to identify the different types of textures based on how they feel doing textural tests.
