The Ag Program and Mattabeset FFA Chapter have many informational and recreational events throughout the year. This page highlights two of the best ways for learning about our program: the Fall & Spring Open House Events.

FALL OPEN HOUSE - for prospective students

The Open House is designed for prospective agriculture students and their adults. It is held an evening in November. See the facilities, meet the staff, speak with students. Those hoping to attend Agricultural Science next year should attend this event. Please, call the center if you are unable to attend or wish to arrange a personal orientation & tour. Call for details (860) 704-4594.

SPRING OPEN HOUSE - for all

APRIL


The annual Open House will be held at the Agriculture Center in April, typically the week before Spring Recess. School field trips are welcome during the day program. The public is invited to attend this free event in the evening. Students who are interested in taking Agriculture are encouraged to attend. The program is still accepting applications for enrollment.

The purpose of the Open House is to showcase the Agriculture Science & Technology Center through displays, demonstrations and hands-on activities, highlighting the key curriculum areas of plant science, animal science, agricultural mechanics, and natural resources. The Open House will highlight opportunities in agricultural education. For more information on the Open House or to reserve a time for your group to attend, call (860) 704-4594.
