Summary of the Day:
This San Joaquin FARMS Field Day and Leadership Lesson begins with a historical tour of garbage and waste management in the United States. Beginning with the New York Department of Street Cleaning in 1881, America’s history of sanitation and waste management is actually much newer than many would believe. Our host, Lisa Klotz, guides us through a Virtual Tour of the operations at CAL-Waste and emphasizes, the Moby Duck Spill, the importance of being a conscious consumer, the amount of plastics in the average human diet, and the ways CAL-Waste is doing its part to preserve our planet.
This event concludes with a Leadership Lesson that focuses on FARMS students’ professional development. FARMS students complete a free “16Personalities” personality test, the U.S. Department of Labor’s “CareerOneStop” Interest Assessment, and use the inventory of their proficiencies to deduce their potentials for presented career paths.
