We have a farm in Valley Center with two goats named Einstein and Newton, 8 pigs (2 are named Tesla and Galileo and the other 6 are temporary residents), a pony named Louis Pasteur because he lives in the pasture, and 7 laying chickens. We sell produce on weekends at the Sedgwick County Extension Farmer's Market. On a more personal note... My husband is a history teacher and football coach at Maize High School. I am the mother of four sons -- ages 18, 14, 13, and 9. We have a farm in Valley Center, KS with two goats named Newton & Einstein, 8 pigs (only two of which are named -- Tesla and Galileo), a pony named Louis Pasteur because he lives in the pasture, and 7 chickens. My sons grow produce and sell it at the Sedgwick County Farmer's Market. Who's going to fill that gap, and what skills will they need to fill it? Work Experience A Question Think about what it means to educate your son or daughter. Should their school be different from the ones you and I had growing up?
