Raley’s Field Trips on the Farm – Mr. Dix

Mr. Dix’s fourth grade class had acres of fun learning about worms, composting, greenhouses, produce preparation, identifying fruit trees, and edible landscapes. They also got to feed chickens and play with the goats at First Generation Farmers. After the farm experience, students got a special behind-the-scenes tour of the Raley’s store in Brentwood. They learned about fresh food versus frozen, how food is stored, and got to feel first-hand how cold a large food storage freezer is! We are grateful to our friends at First Generation Farms and Raley’s for making these trips possible!
