Save the Pierce College Farm & Agriculture Program
My beloved sister in law, Bethany just started the Pre-Vet program at Pierce College this fall. Pierce College gives its students unique learning opportunities with hands on experience in a working farm. Because of the CA budget crisis, the Agriculture Department is in serious risk of being eliminated. The school board intends to get rid of the farm and severely handicap the Agriculture program.
So I am writing this for at least two reasons;
1. I’ve witnessed Beth, like most adults our age (late 20s, early 30’s) start and stop careers that she thought would bring her financial success — only to feel unfulfilled. She’s found a course— a possible career that she is excited about and selfishly, I don’t want that to go away. A similar education is available at Pomona, but because she already has a bachelor’s degree - she would be ineligible to attend. Living in Los Angeles and being able to get hands on experience with cows, pigs, chickens, horses, goats and sheep is INVALUABLE in making her a competitive candidate for vet school. In our depressed economy, veterinary jobs are among the top ten professions that are not only stable, but are projected to grow up to 41% percent in the next 7 years.
2. Agriculture is the state’s number one industry. It doesn’t seem right to get rid of an in demand program that teaches the past, present and future of the Great State of California. Especially to make way for parking spaces. I’m very interested in sustainability, I dream of having a yard where I can have my own vegetable garden. I think a lot of us have developed an itchy green thumb, because as we advance with technology there is a primal need for the tangible - the home made and home spun.
Please read up the subject and if you agree that keeping the Farm and the Agriculture Program at Pierce is important please write so to;
In rural India, many young women are refusing to marry unless the suitor furnishes their future home with a bathroom, freeing them from the inconvenience and embarrassment of using community toilets or squatting in fields.

“Maya sometimes use the image of a path or road as a metaphor for human life. When Yukatek Maya ask, “Bix a bel?” (how is your road?), they are not merely inquiring about the conditions on the path you’re walking upon, they are asking about your state of being as you walk.”—Reality Sandwich | Clearing the Road: Lessons from the Ancient Maya
