November Highlights at YouthWork and Learn

November flew by at our high school YouthWork and Learn program at the Smokey House Center.  Highlights include:

* Cooking and eating from the garden throughout the month, starting with pumpkin pie and ending with carrot-corn burritos.

* Co-hosting a workshop on soil for new farmers, sponsored by RAFFL.

* Creating prints from nature with guest educator Barbara Robertson.IMG_7330

 

 

 

*Preparing for a larger garden in the spring, moving more rocks out of the field we scythed and putting in a cover crop.  (Unfortunately, we put it in too late.  The weather suddenly turned cold. Next year we’ll do better.)

* Building our outdoor skills, hiking in the snow, and some practice with campfire.  (We got it going with a single match!)  It takes practice to roast hot dogs and marshmallows…
