Small hands, big future: Suffield students explore agri-science

Suffield students get the chance to show off what they learned.

SUFFIELD, Conn. — Story by Irene Drezek

At Suffield High School, the 2022 annual Ag Expo took place on April 6 and 7.

 Local agri-science students had the opportunity to present what they learned from the program to younger generations, in hope of spreading awareness of the opportunities that those living in Suffield, as well as its surrounding towns, like East Granby, Granby, Windsor Locks, and Enfield have available to them.

Though the event is catered towards young children, people of many ages are welcome to attend and enjoy the displays, shows, and activities. From nature walks to a tractor demonstration, there’s something to be enjoyed by everyone. 

Students might be patting themselves on the backs for a successful 2022 Ag Expo, but the wheels are already in motion for next year.
