Since its relocation to College Way in 2007, one thing Dixon High School has lacked has been easy access to a farm for its agriculture students, although establishing one has been a priority for the Dixon Unified School District for the last 14 years.
The wait is nearly over. On Saturday, a grand opening will be held for Dixon High’s farm, its first to ever be located on a Dixon High campus.
At its previous location at 455 East A St., Dixon High students utilized a farm on Sievers Road for Future Farmers of America projects. Since the school’s relocation, students have independently worked on projects at different farms. With funding from a Career Technical Education Facilities grant from the California Department of Education and sale of the Sievers Road farm, DUSD was finally able to get the project going, and a groundbreaking ceremony was held in 2019.
