We had the privilege of visiting a Public School to talk about organic farming.
John talked about how to use your hands to figure out what kind of soil texture you have. The kids loved being able to put their hands in the soil. No surprise!
We took time to talk about where soil comes from; lessons about parent material, sand, silt and clay. The kids actually took soil samples from the school garden beds and compared it to soil brought from the farm, taking a look at the soil biology under our microscope.
It’s one thing to ‘talk’ about microbes in our soil and water but it’s another to ‘see’ it all through a microscope.
Thanks for the invitation Charlie!
For any of you interested contact us at the farm.
