Groundbreaking ceremony held for new farm at Kern County Fairgrounds
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the Kern County Fairground on Wednesday for a new farm.
The project is a part of a partnership between the Kern County Fair and local schools.
The new farm will offer students from those schools a chance to learn about raising beds for crops.
Students will work and maintain greenhouses as well as attend cooking demonstrations at a portable kitchen.
These demonstrations will be held during the 12 days that the Kern County Fair is held.
The new farm will help teach students about the benefits of "Farm to Table" education.
