Springville FFA recently volunteered to help teach second-graders about the farm and farm life. They met up at the Harward farms in Springville and were assigned where to help. There were 14 stations that the kids would go through to learn about the farm. The volunteers served as either a tour guide to take the kids around the farm, or a teacher at the stations kids visited.

The second-grade students who attended learned things like farm safety — how to be safe around farm machines or animals. Another station was living necklaces where they got to make a necklace for their wheat plant, and they could watch it grow. They also got to learn about the water cycle. They learned where water comes from and what it can be used for and also how irrigation works for drier places. The students got to pet and see and learn about live animals used on the farm such as sheep, chickens, pigs, goats and cows. And one of the last stations was soils. They learned the layers of soils, what is organic and inorganic, and what makes up the different layers of soil.

Helping out with farm field days is probably one of the best activities that Springville FFA has. Sydney Tuttle, one of the officers in the Springville chapter, said, “The reason why I like to help out with farm field days is to help other kids learn about agriculture and help them understand where their food comes from.”
