Ahhh, and now we are at the end. The finish of each season reminds me of when I was back in school– saying goodbye to all the new friends you’ve made and people you’ve gotten to know, reflecting on the work you’ve done over the year, and looking forward to planning the next year. It is amazing how many people put work into this farm and all of its programs. We would like to thank the following individuals for the time, skills, and good vibes they have dedicated to our farm this season.
Caroline Garber, Casey Boduch, Hallie Bruckner, & Nat Ratchen– thank you for your endless work in the fields and humor as our farm apprentices!
