Today eight students from the Life Skills program visited Round Earth Farm. Sunny and about 45 degrees, it was a beautiful day to be on farm. Adam gave us a tour of his operation amongst the 80 year old apple trees. The students were able to observe the frost damage from the night before (temps dropped into the teens!), check out the farm’s 1949 Allis Chalmers, and the new small fruit grant project.
Before we left, we helped out with a quick mulch project. Round Earth will keep their costumers in beets well into the winter. We learned (and practiced) the why, what, how of mulching.
