The FFA (Future Farmers of America) is an agricultural club in Cam High dedicated to personal, plant and career growth.

The club started in 1928 and is only available to students who are taking agriculture as a class. Members use it as a resource to develop their leadership skills by attending three public speaking offices every year. These days, the main topic they discuss is the present decrease in the bee population; a plague to farmers because bees are essential for the pollination of crops, including 50 of the U.S.’s largest, like almonds. According to Amanda Condon, pollution is the primary reason for this population decline and could lead to extinction.

In order to benefit the community, the FFA is spreading the word on the importance of agriculture by hosting a plant sale once a month in the agriculture department after school, selling a variety of different California-native species, all of which are grown by Cam High students themselves.
