A hearty thanks to the 12 community volunteer 8th grade students who assisted us last Friday afternoon with fall clean-up of the North Hill Community garden. Students are working on their 8 hours of community service to earn their spot on the bus to a Spring visit to Cedar Point. They got a good hour and a half with Shanti Farms!
We look forward to working with these students next year as we plan for the 2018 growing season. The students will work with us on planting, composting, farmer’s market and community arts projects in the gardens. The culinary arts class has great plans to work with us!
Even though the temps were in the 20s and snowflakes were flying, these hardworking students pulled out the cornstalks, took down the vines, picked up trash and even harvested the last of the cabbages for us after school! Thanks 8th grade Jennings Middle Schoolers. What a great bunch of young kids up-and-coming for the community and furthering urban agriculture!
