From A to Z
Our Kindergarten students put together an Outdoor Education Alphabet Book !
Wind and Solar
Our goal is to have all our outdoor ed programs (hoophouse, barn, greenhouse, Sugar Shack) at zero net electric use. Our solar panels are working nicely and producing and this spring we will be getting a new wind turbine to replace the malfunctioning older one. We're working on a plan for our middle school students to track what's produced and what's used, incorporating lots of math and science!
Mr. Mittens has found his favorite spot to keep warm (on top of circuit box in barn with his friend).
We're planning for a fun, outdoor summer on campus. Farm Club and Farm and Forest Adventure Camps! Info coming soon!
