Bulkeley High School Students, New Immigrants to the United States, Benefit from the City Slickers Farming Program
City Slickers is a program that brings 15 of our Bulkeley High School students to the Lazy D Ranch in Harwinton twice per week. Many of the students served are newly arrived to the United States.
“We’ve evolved into a program that provides students who are new arrivals to the country, special needs students and regular mainstream students the opportunity to work on the farm,” said City Slickers Coordinator Gretchen Levitz.
According to Levitz, the day is designed to promote job skills, teamwork and acceptance among all those who participate.*
