Going to School at the Ranch

 Elementary school students, parents celebrate their after-school program at Centennial Farm.

April 4, 2014

 Macie and Baylee Budde wouldn’t have picked broccoli as their favorite food a year ago, much less cared about where it was grown.

Now, after spending seven months in the Ranch After School Program at the Orange County Fairgrounds, the Davis Magnet School fourth- and fifth-graders have a newfound appreciation of where their food comes from.

 “It’s definitely changed the way they eat,” the sisters’ mother, Dana Budde, said of the program. “They wouldn’t really eat vegetables before. Now, they can tell if it’s organic, and where it’s grown, just by looking at it.”
