This week is bound to be an exciting week for us. We are getting two very special guests: an Arancauna and a White hen who will be roosting with us for the rest of the program. The kids are having a “name that hen” competition on Monday. Tuesday we will be joining the Heckscher group once again and heading out to the Queens County Farm to volunteer and see livestock in action.
Thursday of last week, Sandra came in and led a cheese-making workshop. The students liked watching milk and buttermilk transform into cheese, and loved eating it even more. Our farm is in full production mode. We are getting about 4 ripe cucumbers a day, and our swiss chard and collard greens are huge. The kids are loving it!
