Farm Academy

Many eyes are on our employee, Alex Hasbach, the young lady pictured in the back row, third from left, as she graduates with other members of her Farm Academy class on the west steps of the State Capitol in Sacramento. The Farm Academy is sponsored by the Center for Land-Based Learning, which is located in Winters, Calif. My husband Bruce and I attended Alex’s graduation ceremony last weekend, along with her parents, Tom and Pat. As part of the Farm Academy, students work on a farm as an intern while attending an academic training program. Alex is interning at Rominger Brothers Farms, where she is learning all aspects of farming, from irrigating the fields to agricultural accounting. It’s a great program and we’re pleased to have Alex on our team!
