Next, Ann gave a history of Three Swallows Farm leading up to it being a youth-run farm today. Dan then gave a timeline of this growing season and described all of the hard work it has taken to get the gardens to where they are now. After a quick tour of the farm and a popsicle treat, it was time to get our hands dirty!
As we darrive at the farm, we all saw that the garden was full with lots of lush, green plants. Unfortunately, not much of what we were looking at were actually crops. Today, we set out to change this and were successful in weeding three whole rows in one 100° afternoon! This is a testament to how hard-working and motivated our group is.
