6th Grade at Seven Stars Farm
6th grade made their annual trip to Kimberton to visit Seven Stars Farm, a biodynamic farm which produces organic yogurt. We filled sandbags to weight down the plant covers; it took teamwork and communication with our partner to hold the bags and shovel! We tasted herbs including mint, garlic and chive, and visited the bee hives and learned about pollination. Then we celebrated by eating some of the world's best maple yogurt!" ~ Tr. Alex
