After a brief talk on tardiness and responsibility, such as how everyone should strive to be the kind of worker that has drive towards the final product instead of just doing one task at a time and then waiting to be given a new task, we got to work on the farm. The weather today was a lot cooler than it has been lately and started out with mist that turned into an on and off rain. However, we were able to work right through! Tasks included weeding in the morning, and then one group planted carrot seeds while another planted and watered basil. The last group finished putting up the tomato posts.
Another cool thing that happened today is that members of a class on sustainable food systems visited the farm. The class included students run through Groundswell from IC, TC3, and Cornell. After getting an overview of the farm and a background on the Youth Farm Project they helped us out by weeding between some of the beds.
