When you can't go to the farm, you bring the farm to you.

That's what the South Science and Technology has done for the last seven years as part of their annual Farm Day. The day introduces around 750 elementary students to the world of agriculture, through hands-on activities and demonstrations. The students got up close with animals, learned more about how food makes it from the farm to their table, and how local businesses are helping to improve the environment.

"The goal for the program is to have every kid walk out with some sort of educational experience where they walk away knowing that they have done a little better in the community, these are the great things that are happening. Everywhere from our C.O.P. officers out doing the hay rides, to the animals, the chickens, the ducks, the different things that we have going on," said Randal Kohli, City of Lima Head Park Ranger.

The day is made possible thanks to a number of local organizations and businesses.
