Date: May 06 2013 Major: Agriculture/Horticulture (This Major's Salary over time) I graduated with a degree in sustainable Ag. and I was horrified by the way the farm and the animals were treated at GMC. Unsanitary conditions, untreated ailments, weed filled gardens, low quality expectations of goods sold from the farm etc. I believe that GMC's farm and the Ag. program could be wonderful if two things changed. A) find farm managers and paid farm workers who know what they are doing and who care about the success of the farm. You cannot teach someone how to farm well if the farm you are using as an example is in complete disrepair and run by a man who has no practical experience and a woman who wont stand up for what is right Especially when they are completely unwilling to learn from anyone but each other. And B) start allowing students and professors as well as other professionals in the field to look at things with a critical eye and begin to change things. Farming is a fluid act and will not be successful unless allowed to act as such. Each day is different and someone must be in charge and be willing to roll with these changes.In my opinion the best thing GMC could do is fire Kenneth Moulder and Baylee Drown and find someone who cares about the success of the farm and of the students. Some farming experience would be helpful as well.
