Reply To: PRE-REQ/WK1: Introduce Yourself!


Hello Everyone, My name is Richard James.  I live in California in a rural mountain basin just east of the Central Valley where 1/3 of the nation’s vegetables and 2/3 of the nations fruits and nuts are grown.  I am a student at the local Community College majoring in Plant Science and recently started a job with the UC Davis Kern County Extension Office as a student assistant 2 where I will be working on the UCCE Farm and working on a research project with a neighboring County Extension Advisor with Farmers in my area.   I grew up in the midwest and saw grains being grown but personally have never grown them myself.   I hope to learn how to grow grains on my farm and get wonderful recipes.
