May 30th, 2014: Learning Along the River, Week 9

Students traveled to beautiful Dancing Deer Farm in Templeton to experience farm life and taste test the difference between conventional and organically grown fruits and veggies. We all enjoyed a discussion and activity in the garden with local farmer John DeRosier that reminded us how much work goes into planting and harvesting seeds. Kids got the chance to hang out by Dancing Deer Farm’s Tee-Pee while sampling produce purchased from the local grocery store and comparing flavor to farmers market fruits and veggies. Overall it was a fantastic field trip. Thank you Dancing Deer Farm!
