Determination + Germination

June 28, 2018

 

 

Hello all! The newest BBA student team has been working hard at the Dene Farm this season! They are here to tell you a bit about their summers so far...

 

We are incredibly excited to be working at the farm and couldn't ask for a better environment to be enjoying our summers in. We have completed two weeks of work in the rain and shine; planting, growing, and harvesting the produce that feeds Burr and Burton Academy. So far, the BBA garden has been prioritized as our most important project, and the fruit of our efforts (pun intended) has been incredibly rewarding. Within the garden, our main projects have been building and establishing tomato trellises, harvesting microgreens to sell at the Manchester Farmer's Market, preparing furrows and beds for planting, seeding and transplanting, and so much more. Although we have been working very hard these past eight days, it has been more fun than we imagined. Between driving the gator, petting bunnies, and making popsicles, our crew is making the most of our experience. We look forward to giving back to our community and bringing our ideas to the table, and hope to see many familiar faces at Hildene this summer!
