———————————————-

We are regularly being asked two questions.  How can folks help us with our farm to school, farm tours, summer feeding programs, vegetable tastings, and other outreach efforts within Bowling Green and Allen County?  AND, Is there an opportunity for families to send their kids to the farm for a day to get a taste of real food and hard work?  We have been sitting on those two questions for a while and think we have a pretty good solution.  Families who can afford to send their kids to a day of learning on the farm will be able to help us financially support the other on farm, in the classroom, tastings and educational programming we offer. It’s this sort of creative cooperative economics that communities thrive on and we are excited about moving our farm forward in this way.
So, without further ado…
