Agriculture Ed opportunities are available to WMS Parents

As part of our Agriculture Education program, we have an Adult Education component.  The name of the organization is The Woodmont Farmer and Agribusiness Association.  You do not need to be a farmer or in Agribusiness to attend, only interested in the topic! Topics range from gardening to mechanics depending on the guest speaker.

Meetings are held on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6:00 pm at Woodmont High School in the Ag classroom (near the greenhouses).  Dues are $10 per year and a meal is served at each meeting.  The cost of the meal is what you choose to put in the donation basket (usually $5). Tim Keown will be our speaker in September and the topic will be the Governor's School for Agriculture that is being developed.  The meetings usually are over by 7:15.

As part of this association, we have a State Convention in February at Myrtle Beach and farm tours in different parts of the state in July.  We tour produce farms, livestock operations, dairy’s, greenhouses and aquaponics operations, even gold mines.   

Also, as part of the Adult Ed component, we will be offering a course titled Financial Peace University at Woodmont Middle starting in January.  Classes will be held on the 2nd Monday of each month from 4:00-5:30 PM. Please tell your family and friends.  Take a look at the Financial Peace class course content .  Cost of this course is TBD.
