A Visit to the Farm

Middle School Students continue their Farm to School studies

Students investigate a new farm property

As part of their Farm-to-School experience Middle school students went to visit the site of the upcoming Cherry Valley Co-op, where Alec Gioseffi is building a farm and wellness center.  Students walked the 100-acre property, making observations about the land and the water and they used a wooden A-frame to measure areas of equal elevation.  Mr. Gioseffi talked about soil health and water management and he will follow up with more detail in an in-class lesson. In the meantime, students are thinking about how they would plant a new farm, given the constraints of water and the topography of the land. Find out more about Cherry Valley Cooperative.
