Our Monache FFA Officer team invites you to our 3rd Annual Farm Day and 5K on Saturday, March 31 from 8am – 3pm. We are proud to showcase our school farm to members of the local community and look forward to sharing our farm fresh winter vegetables and citrus with the public. Besides the farmer’s market and plant sale, there will be student led tours of our facility, along with the 5K run that morning, with registration for the run between 7-7:45.
Interested participants are invited to register on Active.com. T-shirts will be handed out to all runners. Proceeds from the event go toward helping fund our agriculture program, which includes member participation in judging teams, community service events, livestock shows, leadership conferences, and conventions.
Monache FFA is proud of its many accomplishments, with two State Champion judging teams in Citrus and Fruit Tree to its credit. In fact, just recently the Monache FFA Chapter was ranked as one of the Top 20 Chapters in the state of California, and received the Top 2-3 Person Department for the San Joaquin Region.
So, come join us on March 31, as we showcase our award winning agriculture program in Porterville!! For more information contact our department at (559) 793-3872.
