What a year!

Yesterday marked the last day of the fall/winter program at the farm, and boy was it a big day!

The day started with a farm scavenger hunt, then the students competed in farm Olympics where they had to fill two buckets with weeds, plant corn, pick peas, water the orchard, and fill two wheelbarrows with wood-chips.

Students and staff prepared a barbeque lunch before unveiling the new sign at the entrance of the farm paying homage to Mr. Graham Harkley, and Mrs. Tammy Veltkamp – the amazing teachers who started this program and who will not be returning next year. Their legacy will live on through our students and the farm.

We finished the celebratory day by watching the grade 12 environmental studies students’ film then indulged in some tasty treats and the students presented their teachers with gifts.

P.S a note from the gr. 12 enviro class – SAVE THE BEES!!!

Have a great summer and be sure to visit the farm stand for fresh produce 🙂 Look at all those garlic sapes we just pulled, come before we are all out!
