Future Farmers of America member and Adolfo Camarillo High School sophomore Mitchell Brasted, 15, uses a saw to cut apart giant succulents on a hillside adjacent to the sheep pasture of the high school’s agriculture department on Jan. 11. The overgrowth was providing a home for rodents, which would eat the sheep’s feed and also transmit disease to newborn lambs and mother ewes. The volunteer plant removal is a joint effort of Future Farmers of America and the National Honor Society.
