Mark your calendars for the first Annual Hometown Harvest Day to be held Sunday, Oct. 22 from 1-4 pm at the Bloom-Carroll Land Lab behind the Bloom-Carroll Elementary building on Carroll-Eastern Road.
The event will showcase Fairfield County in honor of the late David Brandt. David, a farmer in our community, was nationally recognized for his use of soil conservation methods in agriculture. He also was a long time supporter of our school, specifically the agriculture program where he donated equipment, expertise and time for our students to gain real world farming experiences.
The Hometown Harvest Day is a family-oriented event with multiple interactive stations where all ages can learn about the latest agriculture techniques while having fun! Families will visit stations and end up in the Bloom-Carroll FFA's pumpkin patch, where children can pick out their own pumpkin to take home for FREE! Refreshments from Fairfield County agriculture will be available free of charge as well. Families should plan for 1-1 1/2 hours to complete the activities.
The event is hosted by the Bloom-Carroll FFA along with several agricultural organizations and businesses in our community. See you at the land lab on the 22nd!
