One way the museum is trying to save $$$ is switching to shredded paper for our guinea pigs bedding. But, we need paper. Either already shredded, newspaper, or non-sensitive papers from your household. Please just leave outside the museum. Thanks for your continued support of the museum.

They will write you back. The pigs may be a little slow as they spend most of the day wallowing in the mud or sunbathing!!

Thank you to the employees of the Bart Garrison Agricultural Museum of South Carolina today for making sure our June Dairy Day went smooth. Today was my first time to visit the museum and I will be back!

From Blake Berry, PHS FFA: Alright all my Pendleton people out there. In just a few short weeks the Pendleton Agricultural Education program will be celebrating its centennial anniversary. We are proud of the fact that we were the very first agricultural education program in the state of South Carolina that came into existence with the ratification of the Smith Hughes National Vocational Education Act on October 1st, 1917. The very first teacher with Mr. Thomas Cathcart. If you, or a friend, or a loved one was involved in the Pendleton Agricultural Education Program/FFA Chapter sometime within the past 100 years, I would love to speak with you and help share your experience. You can respond to this post, send a FB message or email be with your contact information. [email protected] I am interested in all eras, especially in you know someone who was active in the program prior to the 1950's. Please share my post!
