Grade 7/8 collecting soil samples at the last farm day. The holes they are getting their samples from were prepped by the 2nd grade. This area will be the home to our “food forest” observation planting and will include perennial fruit-producing plants. In this “trial plot” we will observe the plants’ health and growth as indications to how they will act in our soil, wetlands environment, and climate. We can then choose from the trial species for mass plantings on the farm.
