Agriculture to some may mean cows, dirt and crops, but to Beth Zimmer, four-year FFA member and recent River Ridge graduate, it means so much more. Her parents are Gerard and Theresa Zimmer. Beth Zimmer joined FFA when she entered high school; her older sister and father were both involved in FFA as well. Zimmer felt it was expected of her to join the club considering her family history, she lives on a farm and has an active love for horticulture.
“I really like horticulture; I have three flower gardens at home,” said Zimmer.
