Plant Sale

Our recent plant sale was a huge success! The tomatoes, peppers, herbs, and flowers offered were strong and healthy, and organically grown from seeds by our students.

A small group of energetic volunteers, including students, came out early on a Saturday morning to paint the trees with the Biodynamic tree paste. The paste is a mix of sand, clay, cow manure, and water and it nourishes and protects the trees.

Each year our entire student body makes the trek across the road to Seven Stars Farm for the annual release of the cows. And somehow it never gets old, seeing the cows gleefully race out to pasture for the first time each spring!
