Event Sponsor

Fisher Barton Specialty Products is a proud sponsor of the Riverside Middle School Garden Project. Students will be taught about modern agricultural practices, and will be focused on learning about sustainable food production and proper nutrition. Riverside Middle School Quote: “Modern agriculture expends more energy producing food than we get out of that food, and that is the definition of being non-sustainable. If more people grow their own vegetables and raise their own food, we will insure a secure food supply. We want to encourage our students to grow their own food which encourages a diverse, healthy diet while giving our students the tools for the knowledge of self-sufficiency. Most children who learn to garden become adults who garden.”

Watertown Food Drive

 The Watertown High School, SkillsUSA team is collecting food to benefit the Watertown Food Pantry. All food collected will be used (un-opened) to create a sculpture, and then donated to the Watertown Food Pantry. Fisher Barton Specialty Products will match all donations.
