Franklin County third graders learn about agriculture

Field day participant

Agriculture Field Day at Riverbend Park in Louisburg, held in September, was sponsored by the Cooperative Extension center in Franklin County. The event gives third-graders in the county an opportunity to learn about rural life, farming and agriculture. Field day organizers also teach students that food comes from the farm, and then to grocery stores and restaurants. Here, youth listen to a presentation.
