Organic Farm Field Trip

Last Friday we drove down to the University of California Santa Cruz for a field trip at their Organic Farm.  Although we walked through some minor drizzle off and on, we had a fantastic time.  The earth's freshly washed scent refreshed us, and the walking was invigorating.  

Our homeschool group was divided up into groups, and we were included in the "Apple Crisp" team with our dear friends Betsy, Lydia, Luke, and Titus Williams.  Our volunteer teacher for the day was Emily.  As we discovered, this was Emily's first day leading a group.  (Emily, will you continue after having to work with us???)  She was a fantastic guide, and we'd highly recommend not only Emily but the entire field trip to anyone in the vicinity. We're looking forward to returning in October for the fall program! 

Here's a little movie I put together of our day.  (Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to pause the music first!)
