This week I accompanied third grade students from Oakhurst Elementary School in Decatur to Decimal Place Farm in Conley, GA. The school received a mini-grant from the Decatur Education Foundation for a project called, Be The Change. This project teaches the children how the gift of a goat can empower a family to turn hunger into hope and prosperity. At the farm, the students had the opportunity to milk a goat and learn how the milk could be used to make cheese. Aside from their educational experience, the children also discovered that goats are gentle and social creatures. The day after their visit to the farm, these third graders learned that they would be donating a goat to a poor family in Africa.
