The Petaluma Future Farmers of America are carrying on a 90-year old tradition of training the next generation of agriculturists.

Agriculture is a big part of Petaluma’s past and present, and the Petaluma chapter of this national organization is making sure it’s also a part of our future.

The Petaluma High School program includes welding, agricultural biology, art and history of floral design, veterinary science and wildlife management.

“For many of us in education, it’s important for students to have other opportunities outside of sports or outside of ASP leadership type opportunities … ” said Kim Arntz, agriculture teacher and FFA adviser at Petaluma High School. “It’s their opportunity to shine and develop a plan for their future and the connection to the career they will have.”
