Heritage and Culture Class at Waconia High Brings Kids to the Farm
About 20 students taking part in Waconia High School’s Minnesota Heritage and Culture class took an interesting field trip recently.
According to the school district, the capstone class is juniors and seniors and while the lessons vary, the class went to Tim and Amy Leonard’s dairy farm just outside Waconia to learn more about the farm, its history, and the work they do.
The teacher of the class, Clark Machtemes, has been teaching the class for a bout 15 years, according to the district. And he says it may be the only class of its kind in the state. As part of the class, extensive field trips happen regularly and include the Leonard farm, an apple orchard, and a maple syrup farm.
