This May marked the 8th generation of tomato seeds saved and planted with the Hotchkiss K8 1st graders through our program! Tomatoes harvested from these plants will be used in our Families on the Farm program cooking and nutrition classes.
Last Wednesday two first grade classes visited Thistle Whistle Farm for tomato planting, vegetable tasting, bee observing and baby goat petting. The students were fascinated with our glass observation hive and asked lots of good questions. A highlight for me was a student who wanted to take the entire farm home with him, bit by bit.
