On May 1st we had 26 visitors from the Presbyterian Preschool Program. A fun garden discovery tour with Farmers Jane, Carol and Jill was the first order of business! Following the tour a picnic in the pavilion 😊. To top off the field trip, the children potted a plant to give to Moms for Mothers Day. A good time was had by all!
This September was the third year the first graders from St. Andrew’s School on Whitmarsh Island toured the Farm to gather information to bring back to their own gardening projects at school. The children garden in raised beds at school, a part of the curriculum. Nice! Future Gardeners.
A big thank you to Jane Kollman and Carol Stiles for all the work they do at the garden with the children’s programs. They are helping to establish in some a lifelong love of gardening!
On Wednesday 10/21, Jane Kollman and Carol Stiles hosted a field trip for students from St. Andrews School. Through a variety of activities, Jane, Carol, and their helpers gave the students a great introduction to gardening and farming, and a great time was had by all!
The filming of the television cooking show, Flip my Food, took place at the Farm this week! Here comes the food truck!
Today’s show was all about honey, bees and cooking with honey and fresh produce from the Farm! Farmer Barbara did segments on honey tasting, cooking with honey and beekeeping .
There were also cooking segments with Laura Liu, also a Beekeeper at the Farm, and Chef Darryl from Oak Ridge Pub and Grill.
Chef Jeff cooked with honey as well as fresh produce that he harvested from the Farm!
