A Day at The Farm School
In 2013, 2,600 kids and 100 teachers from 42 schools come for multi-day programs at The Farm School fanned out over the year. 15 adult students complete the Learn to Farm Program at Maggie’s in September and another 15 begin their year in October. 8 Local middle school students are embedded in the middle of it all at the Chicken Coop School. Here is one day. July 17, 2013. Chosen randomly, it could be anyway. But, of course, it is particular, made up of particular moments. The sun rises at 5:26 and sets at 8:23. Clear and calm and it’s hot, climbing to 94 degrees by mid-afternoon. Dina and I strapped on our cameras to document the day.
