Farm Team

This week we started the Farm Team at our school. We had such a great interest that we had to spread it out for four days each week. After school, the kids meet me in my classroom and we walk out the day's composting container from the cafeteria and then the fun begins. It is so much more enjoyable taking care of the farm with interested kids pointing out things that I would not normally stop and see. Maybe it is the lower level that they walk on or perhaps it is the fact that they don't have a huge list of to do's to get through by the end of the day. Whatever the reason, it sure is fun when the kids are around to work the farm!
Upper Farm Team Girls dead-headed the flowers and watered the thirsty plants.
This farm friend used our reclaimed water to sprinkle our beds.

We had a huge turnout with our younger boys!

This friend from the Intermediate Farm Team harvested a handful of carrots.
 These Farm Team friends collected 136 peppers from the farm!

The Primary Girls Farm Team worked hard taking care of our gardens.

This cool farm friend was spotted by the boys. Love it!
Working on the farm is so much fun with our Farm Teams! I can't wait until next week!
