Chicken friendsAs part of our Outdoor Education program, students work on an organic farm known as Trap Rock Ridge Camp (a.k.a. Rob and Sally’s). Harvest sweet potato Bean harvest and munchingHere is a note from Rob regarding our first visit of the year :


Hi CELCers Young and Old,
Thank you for a wonderful visit to our place yesterday. You all worked like you had been here many times before. I’m always amazed at how much gets done in two hours.
I hope you enjoyed yourselves while you were here. Today I will start digging sweet taters. They do not like to sit around in cool soil. And, thanks to you, we can have a fire in our fireplace tonight.
Next time you come I hope to make baked potatoes on the grill as part of your lunch. Interested??
Tell your teachers I will be checking to make sure they read you this thank you note. They have been known to be a little forgetful (don’t tell them I said that).
Sally and I are already looking forward to seeing you again. Our chickens, gardens, and woodpiles are very happy today thanks to you all.
With Gratitude,
