Published on

Allentown High School student Rebecca Hopkins’ FFA team won a state level competition for their knowledge about nursery plants and landscaping, and now they are on their way to the National FFA Convention. They’ve been studying hard, learning about landscaping tools, plants, grasses, flowers, and more after school in their agricultural building on the grounds of the High School. The team of four were picked to represent New Jersey for what they learned about the plants and landscaping. Teams from forty-eight states will be competing in just the Nursery/Landscape competition alone.
Rebecca could use your help. She’s raising her own funds for the October 24- 27th trip to Indianapolis. She wants to pay her own way, and has been having bake sales in various places around town to raise enough money. Rebecca doesn’t want anything for free. She is willing to bake for you in repayment for your donations. If you send a donation, she wishes to give something back to you. Her mom has a shop in building 49 at the New Egypt Flea Market called Jersey Girls Produce & Seasonal Items. Rebecca has been selling fudge, brownies, breads, cakes, and cookies there on Wednesdays and Sundays from 8AM-2PM. If you are willing to help her with donations for her trip, please contact her at
She would be happy to bake for you!!!! Please help her get to Indianapolis for the competition!
