FFA - Future Farmers of America
If you want to learn more about growing plants, forestry, wildlife, turf & landscape, small-engine repair, tractor operation, and environmental issues, then our Agriculture program might be a good fit for you. Our students will utilize the fields and forests at Caribou Technology Center to cultivate, plant, maintain, harvest and sell fresh commodities. We will teach all the skills needed on a farm, including basic electricity, welding, tractor operation, and small engine repair. Students will also have the opportunity to work with live animals and gain summer employment working at our farm stand.
FFA - Students enrolled in our Agriculture class are encouraged to join the Caribou FFA Chapter, although a student does not have to be enrolled in Agriculture in order to join or continue with FFA. FFA members participate in many field trips and community activities throughout the year. Students get the opportunity to hold leadership positions and to compete at the state and national conventions through membership in FFA. FFA members will also attend the Big E, which is the largest agricultural fair on the East Coast.
