In July, our farm hosted high school students and Ag teachers attending camp at the University of Mount Olive.
The college hosted its first ever TTFC SAE Camp and a farm tour at our farm was part of their week of training. The camp was funded by the North Carolina Tobacco Trust Fund Commission.
The purpose of the camp was to educate and provide Supervised Agriculture Experiences to FFA members and professional development training to chapter advisors. Throughout the week, UMO introduced students to the varied career opportunities in agriculture and provided leadership training opportunities to students and professional development opportunities to chapter advisors. During this week, students were able to earn 45 exploratory hours toward their SAE projects.
