Today the class walked down to Jean’s Farm near Johnson Creek. The students were able to experience what it’s like to be “out in the country” right in the heart of SE Portland. I hope to get some student reflections on here in the next day or two, but for now let the pictures tell the story of a near perfect day on the farm.
Thanks to Room 24 parents Betsy, Robin, Gwynn, Julie, and Pam; paraprofessionals Haley and Nick; and my daughter Carrie for going along with us. Lewis garden coordinator Kathleen organized the whole trip and was in charge of the forest station. Jean’s Farm’s Farm Education Coordinator Wendy Bruder was in charge of the farm station, and our very own Pam took charge of the kitchen and helped make some incredible pesto. Thank you all!
