8th Grade: Farm Trips

8th Grade Farm Trips

The 8th Grade gardening class with Ms. Davis has been traveling to Crossroads Organic Farm in Malverne, NY every Thursday.  We are learning the elements of sustainable agriculture and what that looks like for a local farm in our area.  We are also learning the methods of Biodynamics (a branch of agriculture created by Rudolph Steiner) which is a proven way to heal the earth from chemical and radioactive damage.  The pictures above include our biodynamic seed ash preparation, harvesting tomatoes, weighing them and preparing them for sale in the market, basil seed saving, potting of rosemary plants for winter greenhouse, planting of the cover crop rye and biodynamic compost preparation.
