Fall Student Farm came to a close last week with a celebration. Student farmers taught parents and siblings how to lay irrigation tape and plant kale seeds. Some shared excerpts from their farm journals. To the delight of Ashley Parrish Decker, Food Corps Service Member and Student Farm lead, the students had nothing but great things to say about their experience at HAREC. The highlight of the afternoon entailed of making…and enjoying veggie pizzas and smoothies made in the bicycle-blender.
Fall Student Farm is offered to Balboa Middle School. The program resumes in spring with DeAnza Middle School, both in Ventura Unified School District. HAREC Student Farm is a collaboration with VUSD and FoodCorps.
