Beyond Recycling students in Revelstoke had an incredible Food Field trip today to Terra Firma Farms, an organic farm just outside Revelstoke. Students toured the farm, learning about how the animals on the farm (chickens and pigs) help feed the vegetables through composting. Students were able to see the different stages of many types of vegetables, learn about greenhouses, irrigation, pest control and got to meet some incredible local farmers!
Students were able to spend an hour contributing to the farm by putting soil in pots, transplanting vegetables into larger pots, seeding trays, weeding and planting ready-to-go cucumber plants into the fields.
Thank you Terra Firma Farms for hosting us, we learned so much about farming!
