Students at Pacific Beach High School in San Luis Obispo are getting hands on farming experience.     

Now in it’s fourth year, it’s all part of a course called Farm.

The students head out to the Central Coast Grown farm twice a week.

"They’re getting credit for it," said Steven Marx, Central Coast Grown Board President. "They’re learning about nutrition. They’re learning about biology. They’re learning about agriculture."

They’re in the process of harvesting crops they planted in Fall, and are now planting new ones.    

"I feel like every time I come out here, I gain something, so I feel like I’m just growing with the plants," said student, Ariana Laing.

The students also prepare food as part of the class and of course, are able to enjoy it!
