Recently, students from a town in Ohio used tractors in order to get to their high school.
According to a report from the Newark Advocate newspaper, the town's chapter of the Future Farmers of America hosted the Drive Your Tractor to School day at Johnstown-Monroe High School. All types of tractors - from lawn mowers to larger farm equipment - made the trek to the school.
In addition to the tractor day, members of the FFA played host to a number of kindergarteners, who got to check out some of the farm equipment that was driven to the school. The kindergarteners also got the chance to pick out their own pumpkins, which were grown by FFA members.
Like the FFA members in Johnstown, members of a La Quinta, California middle school are growing their own produce in a community garden. The garden, which is located near Col. Mitchell Paige Middle School, sits on 2,400 square feet of property and will be used to grow vegetables that will be eaten by students at the school.
