This week Owen's first grade class visited World Hunger Relief Farm in Elm Mott. WHRF is a Christian organization committed to the alleviation of hunger around the world. Their mission is to train, motivate and partner with the community to accomplish this goal.
The students learned all about crops, livestock and life at the farm. We saw lots of sweet baby animals :)
Owen was chosen to be a "goat" to demonstrate how they are milked (ha ha)!
The class was able to taste mint leaves, pet animals and see eggs. Our "farmer" tour guide explained a new program they are launching for vegetable prescriptions. A doctor can write an Rx for veggies a patient needs to consume more of instead of medicine. Very interesting!
The class was very well behaved and had a great time. Can't believe this bunch is about to promote to 2nd grade soon.
