Landmark Park Living History Program kicks off

By  | 

Dothan, AL (WTVY)- Students at Montana Magnet School made history come to life Tuesday.

Thirty students took on the role of farmers at Landmark Park and even dressed the part.
The program is called Living History...students get to learn about life on the farm through different hands-on activities.
These include: working in the garden, churning butter, meal prepping, and even learning the basics of blacksmithing.
The experience is to remind kids that there was a time in history when things couldn't be done electronically.
At the end of the program, students gathered to eat lunch that they helped to prepare.

Laura Stakelum, Public Relations Director says:
"I think this program especially instills an appreciation for farming and for our history for how hard our ancestors had to work and it makes us appreciate what we have today."
