Final News from the Farm

With our last harvest fast approaching on Thursday, Tim and I have been working hard to get beds ready for winter. We've been cleaning up the farms, spreading compost and planting rye as a cover crop (to hold soil and add organic matter to it) so next spring we can hit the ground running.

On Saturday, our DIRT (Dynamic Intelligent Responsible Teens) Crew prepared our garlic for planting, breaking the hundreds of heads into thousands of cloves. As we worked, I had the pleasure of listening-in while a graduate student named Sarah interviewed our teens about what they have learned about themselves and their planet from their The Food Project experience. As I listened I was inspired by the depth of thinking and knowledge of the food system that my young coworkers exhibited, and by their ability to articulate their ideas. I look forward to seeing them continue to grow and learn and wish great things for them over the next 7 months in our Academic Year Program.
