A Visit to the Farm

Middle School and Upper Elementary visit Cherry Valley Co-op

Farm-to-School

Middle School and Upper Elementary students visited the Cherry Valley Co-op as part of their Farm-to-School experience. They learned about what farmers can do to extend their growing season and prepare for the long winter. 

The Upper Elementary students focused their time learning about seeds and making sauerkraut. They were shown how to harvest pepper seeds, and then cultivated dirt in order to plant onion seeds. They finished the day with a cooking and cutting lesson using a variety of vegetables grown on the farm such as cabbage, carrots and radishes. The students also learned about the fermentation process of sauerkraut and how it’s beneficial probiotics, or ‘live bacteria’, are produced, and how these probiotics give it most of its health benefits.

The Middle School group learned about high tunnels and greenhouses and then created two tunnels inside a high tunnel and covered them with materials to insulate the plants.
