6th Grade Farm Visit Overnight  

All 6th grade students are invited to join us for a beautiful Fall weekend for two days of laughing, exploring, eating great food, and learning about life on a local organic farm.  We will transform ourselves into farmers for an amazing overnight on Duyck's Peachy-Pig Farm in Cornelius, which offers orchards, hiking, farm animals, and a pumpkin patch.  

 

The plan is to board an activity bus at 11:00am on Saturday and head to the farm for a day of harvesting, tending to animals, and learning what it takes to run a productive farm.  We will camp Friday night in the orchard, and will be rewarded for our work with a big farm breakfast on Sunday before doing more exploring.

 

We hope to be back to Catlin Gabel by noon on Sunday.  We will leave the weekend with new friends and a new connectedness to our food and the places where it is grown.

 

The cost for this trip is $40.  Please send an e-mail to David Zonana to sign up.
