Adult ag classes offered at CHS

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Area residents will have the opportunity to go back to school with the start of adult ag classes this fall at Cassville High School.

According to Kelin Kruse, CHS ag instructor, adult classes will be offered to those interested in the topics being presented.

The first class, starting at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 19, will cover blueberry production.

"These classes are a great opportunity for members to hear from experts and take that information and apply it to their own operation," Kruse said. "It's also a great way for neighbors to come together and visit."

Kruse said those attending can expect to learn practical information typically not found in magazines or textbooks.

Classes will be held on the third Monday of each month. A schedule of topics through the rest of the year is as follows: Oct. 17, forage improvement and analysis; Nov. 21, Southwest Missouri Drug Task Force; and Dec. 12, creating a Christmas wreath.

Classes will be held in room #506 at the high school. Classes are also planned for January through April, with topics to be announced.

"We hope that those attending these classes will find something interesting, and most importantly, apply that knowledge at home," Kruse said.
