``Award Winning`` Farming and Agriculture Curriculum
The Newton College and Career Academy sets the standard for Georgia and the United States in studies related to farming and agriculture related to fruits and vegetables. You are welcome to contact us about how you can implement this same “award winning” strategy in your school.
Under the instruction of Mr. Pollard and Mrs. Gunter, we are able to learn the importance of organic gardening. Organic gardening helps to prevent a loss of topsoil, toxic runoff, water pollution, soil contamination, soil poisoning, death of insects, birds, critters and other beneficial soil organisms, as well as eliminating pesticide, herbicide, and fungicide residues on food from synthetic fertilizers.
We now realize that the basic theory in organic gardening is that “nature knows best.” We learned that the organic gardener starts from the soil up, by feeding the soil, not the plant and creating a rebirth in the life and vitality of their lawn or garden. We realize that there is a need for chemicals in some instances, but we have also learned how the intended or unintended misuse of harmful chemical pesticides may put your plants and your family at risk. Organic gardeners nurture the ground through techniques or systems that are found in nature. Mr. Pollard and Mrs. Gunter help to teach us those unique techniques that help in organic gardening.
We Grow Food For Appetites Around The World
Our parents depended seasonally on fresh vegetables that were grown locally or in other areas of the United States. Most vegetables and fruits were only available in the spring or summer time. Now, with a global economy, we have fresh fruits and vegetables year round from other areas of the world. Through the Newton College and Career Academy, we are learning how other farmers in the world ``tend`` to their crops.Learn More
