Last week on Friday, the Agricultural Science plot saw the annual Farm and Feed Day take place. Despite the torrential rain the turn out was amazing with over 60 farmers, program supporters, parents and students coming along to enjoy a pig-on-the-spit, which was accompanied by delectable side dishes that showcased the farm and local produce. The Agricultural Science students got to talk with many of the visitors and inform them of what they learn in lessons and on the farm. However, due to the rain they were not able to do all of the planned tours.
The bonus of the rain however, was that the Hospitality students got to showcase their amazing food preparation skills and their very professional hosting capabilities. The overall atmosphere of the event spoke for itself, as everyone experienced the camaraderie of good friends and interesting conversation. It is with great thanks to the Hospitality staff and students, friends and family that all pulled together to make this a wonderful day.
