Last week students from Hobart and William Smith Colleges joined us on the farm for their week-long alternative spring break. The eight students and their amazing coordinator from the Finger Lakes Institute arrived early each morning from their campus in Geneva, New York to work with us for the day. The HWS students put in approximately 360 hours of hard work and the results were astounding. With their amazing energy and hard work, we finished mulching the garlic, putting up the hoop house, taking down last years fencing, giving the barn a good cleaning, prepping fresh vegetable and fruit snacks for the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Snack Program, and we accomplished much more! Many thanks to the Hobart and William Smith group for letting us wake the farm this past week! Megan Begart, the director of the Ithaca Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Snack Program, enjoyed hosting the HWS students, as well and appreciated their help prepping the snack and making dried apple rings for the kiddos!
