Carpinteria Future Farmers of America (FFA) program director Sal Lopez spoke to Rotary Club of Carpinteria Morning over Zoom recently, showing how the FFA program teaches its students life skills.
Students from FFA took care of their animals seven days a week, nurturing and raising them from the time they were younglings, explained Lopez. FFA launched a virtual market to help students sell their animals after the cancelation of the Ventura County Fair.
Donations to support FFA students can be sent to CHS Farm Boosters, 3950 Via Real 81, Carpinteria, CA 93013 or transferred by Venmo to @CarpinteriaFFA. For more information, reach out to Sal Lopez at email@example.com.
