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…

What we hear...


“[The student] has made significant gains in reading. Her MAP reading score in September was 156 and on the first percentile. We have just finished our spring testing and she is now on the 45th percentile with a score of 188. She is now performing at grade level. All around, she is much happier and confident. Her parents and I can see a big difference in attitude.”
