Field Trip Updates

GFN-FieldTrip-Leeds-ThankYouIn total, 711 elementary school students from 34 classrooms in Northampton, Easthampton, and Holyoke schools visited the farm this fall, in addition to several spring field trips. River Valley Market and the Northampton Education Foundation each made a major contribution of $3,000 to offset a significant portion of the costs of our 2015 field trips. We were able to pay for the buses and professional field trip leaders from The Farm Education Collaborative to provide a wonderful visit to Crimson & Clover Farm, complete with carrot and kale harvesting. There is rarely greater satisfaction in this work than when dozens of first-graders are wandering through the kale patch munching on raw leaves and declaring them “sweet” and “delicious!”
