What is the project?
The Water Story is an
educational display that explains the water story and uses a rain shed
to illustrate with rainwater falling from the roof into the pond which
is pumped back up onto the roof to complete the cycle.
What would your chapter be responsible for doing?
The club would
be responsible for designing the pond and surrounding landscaping,
implementing the design (working with Dr. Gary Hawkins from Tifton to
fit in his display), and taking the pond down the week after the Fair.
There is no funding for the project, so it would have to be a “community project” and the materials would have to be donated/loaned. The Agricenter does have a pond liner, gravel, and concrete block that can be used for this project. They would also be willing to place signage for any companies that donated to the project (supplies or funds), the FFA chapter, and educational information about FFA horticulture programs in the pond area. If the club provided the plants, we could advertise them for sale to be picked up after the Fair or coordinated through the club.Does this sound like something your FFA chapter might be interested in undertaking? If so, you can contact me by email [log in to unmask] or Sandy Kusuda at 478-988-6555 or email [log in to unmask]
