We are so excited to announce that the Growing A Future School Farm has been approved by the Fern Ridge School District. This 3 acre parcel sits south of the Elmira Elementary School and will be developed over a 5 year period with the goal and purpose to provide classroom and hands on training for students and community members. The school farm will be overseen by Sea Mercy, an international non-profit organization based in Elmira and directed by Trey Hackett. Trey is an EHS alumni and an Oregon State University graduate in Agriculture Science.
Our sincere Thanks to the FRSD and the Elementary, Middle and High School leadership who supported the development of this program. More to come!
