Student growers donate harvest to wildfire victims

THE Crook County chapter of the Future Farmers of America harvested 8,000 pounds of potatoes on Saturday and this year, rather than sell them, they will go to help feed wildfire victims in the Willamette Valley.

Jeff Papke of Crook County FFA Alumnus said in an interview with US News Channel 21 ktvz.com: "One of the purposes of our farm here is not only to give the students the experience of production farming, raising awareness of growing crops, but we also want to give back to the community, and every year we pick different organisations and causes. This just felt right. It made sense that we had these and it was something that we wanted to do."

Crook County is a county in the US state of Oregon and the FFA is a US-wide youth organisation that prepares members for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture.
