Earth Day on the Farm


We were fortunate enough to have seven Howard School classes come over and spend Earth Day with us. The students were supposed to complete worksheets while visiting us.. but who can do that when there are chickens, a pig, and lots of fun things to touch?!?! We mainly spent the day discussing what we do at Fresh Roots Farm and how to hold a chicken correctly. As you can see, the students became pros very quickly.

We talked about composting and why it makes soil healthy..

Olivia took a dip in her pool while we had guests over...

A special thanks has to go out to our wonderful volunteers, Madi and Ami, for helping us out yesterday and making Earth Day very special for the Howard School students.

We feel very fortunate that such a great school is right next door to us, and we look forward to many more visits in the future.

Eat Well,
