Waltham Family School Visit

Over the last two weeks we had two visits from the Waltham Family School. It was really great to have visits where parents and children get to experience the farm together. It is also wonderful to share our farm with families who are a part of the Waltham community.

We went on a tour of the farm together and talked about all the different vegetables we grow and our organic practices. Then, we visited the chickens and everyone got a turn to pet a chicken and feed it some grass or grains. We also got to make a delicious healthy snack with vegetables harvested from our farm and learning garden. The first visit we made a swiss chard salad with basil and homemade dressing. The second visit we made a cool cucumber and mint salad. Both snacks were delicious and made by the kids!

I love being a part of these farm visits because I get to meet all different people from our community. I am always talking about our farm, but each group brings such great energy that helps me be excited to share why I think fresh, local, organic produce is so important. Thanks for visiting, Waltham Family School! Hope to see you back again soon!
