AGRICULTURE

The Creek Wood Agricultural Education Program teaches students about agriculture, food, and natural resources. Students learn and develop a wide variety of skills, including science, math, communications, leadership, management and technology. This happens primarily through labs including Animal Science (Agriscience, Small Animal Care, Large Animal Care & Veterinary Science) and Plant Science (Agriscience, Greenhouse Mgmt. & Turf/Landscape Mgmt.) Pathways.

AGRICULTURE

Agriculture education teaches students about agriculture, food, and natural resources. Through these subjects, agricultural educators teach students a wide variety of skills including science, math, communications, leadership, management, and technology. Agricultural education is delivered through three interconnected components: classroom or laboratory instruction, experiential learning, and leadership education through FFA.

"The organization has grown to be more than cows, sows, and plows; the modern FFA is about beakers, speakers, and job seekers."

AGRICULTURE

We are sitting on a gold mine of opportunities to share with the agriculture students. I am most excited about all of the pathways we offer at Dickson County High School. Through the Agriculture classes here, we are able to teach in a small engine shop setting, small animal facility, greenhouse, and in the near future a barn facility. If there is any student interested in any form of agriculture, Ms. Elizabeth and I will have the opportunities to teach them more about it. I am so excited to be able to educate our youth of Dickson County about this ever-changing industry.

"You know, farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you're a thousand miles from the corn field."
