Hundreds of Prattville Intermediate School 6th graders learned about farming, farm animals, and preserving natural resources in a hands-on event, Farm City Week, held at the R.H. Kirkpatrick Pavilion in Autaugaville.
Volunteers with the Alabama Power Company Service Organization led students and their teachers to each exhibit where students listened to presentations, asked and answered questions, and learned about the many aspects of forestry, farming, gardening, raising livestock and the intricacies of aquatic science.
Exhibitors included: Laurie Weldon, ACES; Andrew Baril, ACES; Cathy Coleman; the Autauga County Master Gardeners; Autauga Forestry & Wildlife Stewardship Council; Autauga County Forestry; David Cline, Auburn University Fisheries; Clint Smith; the Lowell Strock Family; the David Downey Family; Irene Langford & Linsdey Langford; the Sam Abney Family; Rudy Yates, ACES; and Patrick Cook, ACES.
The 33rd annual Farm City Week was made possible through the support of the Autauga County Commission, Autauga Forestry and Wildlife Stewardship Council, Alabama Ag Credit ,the Alabama Power Company Service Organization, and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (Autauga County office).
