CALEDONIA, Miss. (WCBI) – A nation-wide mobile program chose Caledonia elementary as its lone Mississippi stop today.
The program “Seed Survivor” teaches elementary school children the importance of farming and where food comes from.
Local farmers brought their tractors and equipment to assist Seed Survivor in showing their side of the business.
“The population of the world is only growing, and so we have to be smart with the resources that we have. They’re going to explore, talk to local farmers, find out what’s growing right here in Caledonia, and just ask questions and enjoy being outside,” says PTO member, Amy Sumrall.
A hotdog lunch was provided by Crop Production Services and each kid got to plant their own sunflower.
