It's field trip season on the farm! Each week we welcome students from the Ithaca City School District to participate in farm based education.

We love having friends and family on the farm! 👩‍🌾👨‍🌾👫👫🌾🌌✨ At family dinner, our summer youth got to show their families all of the hard work they’ve done all summer. We’re so proud of them! #youthfarmproject #foodjustice #youngfarmers #sustainableagriculture #knowyourfarmer #ithaca

An inspiring visit from @rafaflocka of @rockyacrescommunityfarm who presented “Are Chickens Racist?” for development day this week. We explored the history of chickens and racism and had a great discussion. We all learned so much- thanks Rafa! #youthfarmproject #foodjustice #socialjustice #socialjusticewarriors #antiracism #youngfarmers
