Ag in the {new} Classroom

Yesterday we attended the Petaluma High School Agriculture Department Open House to celebrate the opening of the newly renovated and upgraded Agriscience classroom.

Petaluma Mayor, Pamela Torliatt along with Petaluma's Ag Advisor, Kim Arntz and newly hired Ag teacher, Mike Touchstone begin the ribbon cutting ceremony just outside the renovated classroom.


At one time, this classroom was the boy's gym locker room.

My assistant, Bryce, helping me by taking additional photos.

Mayor Torliatt also presented Petaluma FFA's International Champion Dairy Judging Team with a certificate from Senator Mark Leno commending them on their accomplishment.

You can read all about their journey in one of my previous posts titled, "The Scotland Adventure".

You can't have an Ag open house {or any open house} without food and there was plenty of that!

Delicious sausage.

A platter of local cheeses from the Petaluma Creamery.

For some reason I ended up with about 100 photos of brownies.

Also in attendance was David Rabbitt, who is currently running for Sonoma County Supervisor.

This is the high school that both Dominic and I attended and it's always fun to go back for a visit to see what changes have taken place.

These are the type of the things students can learn to build in an Ag class and oh, how I would like to have this BBQ!  Maybe Bryce will build one for me in 10 years when he's in high school.....let's hope he'll have the opportunity if he so desires and these Ag classes will still be around at that time. 
Happy Monday!
