“Giving Farm” Now Open at Westminster High School
The Community Action Partnership of Orange County, Westminster High School, and many other community partners hosted the grand opening ceremony for the newly renovated agricultural sciences area at Westminster High called the “Giving Farm.”

The fully functional eight acre farm aims to teach students practical, applicable skills regarding modern agriculture while simultaneously helping the community by donating food to the Orange County Food Bank. Many local school officials, nonprofit partners, government agencies, and local elected officials including Westminster Mayor Tri Ta and Councilmember Sergio Contreras were in attendance to celebrate the project.

The Future Farmers of America chapter at Westminster High operates the farm and plans to donate its first harvest this fall. For more information about the program, please visit their website here.
