BCCC agricultural students turn trash into treasure

Agricultural students at the Barnwell County Career Center are learning to turn trash items such as old tires, broken pallets, and gallon jugs into gardens this year!
Students were given the project options of raising a bantam chick or creating a garden with recycled goods. While about half of the students have opted for the cuddly bantam chick, several others were greatly interested in growing their own food in a fall garden.

FFA summer camp offers fun, team building

Eight members of the Barnwell County Career Center FFA Chapter recently attended the SC FFA Camp at Cherry Grove.
The group participated in a week of paintball, kayaking, athletics, team building with low and high ropes courses, a cardboard boat building contest, a beach trip with Ag Olympics, and nightlife activities which included a sunset dolphin cruise, Legends In Concert, and unlimited go-cart riding.

Nobles named SC FFA Star Farmer

The Barnwell County Career Center FFA along with over 110 other South Carolina FFA chapters participated in the 87th Annual South Carolina FFA Convention held at the Brooks Center for Performing Arts of Clemson University June 11-13.
Watching as chapter president Coltin Nobles was recognized as the South Carolina FFA Star Farmer of the Year was definitely the highlight of the trip for the BCCC members.
