Urban Farm

We have a series of field trips on the agenda the next few weeks.

Last week we visited Eat South, an urban farm located in downtown Montgomery, Ala.

It was a great two hours with our friends and a FUN learning experience.

Urban farmer Owen helped the children with farm vocabulary, as well as enticed them to taste the crops.

He introduced us all to Buffy, the big, fluffy one and Chipmunk, a smaller, darker hen barely visible in this picture. Jack and Mattie both were willing to touch and pet Chipmunk, but Mattie was the only one of my two brave enough to hold her.

All the children got involved in some picking as well. Jack has in his hand a purple sweet potato.
