295 Children Served This Week!

Posted 5/25/2013 6:18am by Brittany Sidway.

Well, it was a whirlwind week at MCF!  Not only did we catch up on our planting (almost 2000 bed feet in just two days!), harvest the spring share (we are on week 4), keep up with greenhouse seeding and destroying lots and lots of weeds but we also were able to provide farm education for 80 Medway 4th graders, 200 Medway 6th graders and 15 Franklin 2nd grade Brownies!

The 4th graders came on Monday to weed their gardens and helped build the children's garden we will use in the summer programs this summer!  

Then, on Tuesday we went to the Middle School to plant the sunflowers we started on the windowsill in the courtyard.  The soil in the courtyard is not very healthy, but luckily we just received a grant from the Whole Kids Foundation to build raised bed gardens in the fall!!  

And on Friday, in the drizzling rain, the Brownies and I had a blast touring the farm, tasting garlic leaves, dill, lettuce, bok choy, brushing our teeth with sage leaves and talking about the importance of water in agriculture!

Interested in farm education for your child, class, group?  Check out these opportunities at MCF or email me!
