This Friday was a very special day for the preschool and pre-kindergarten children of Walker Jones as they welcomed their families in to school for a fall feast to celebrate both the changing of the seasons and the bounty of the farm harvest this year. The tables were wrapped in simple paper, and graced with decorations the children collected from nature and made in art.
Farmer John worked with each of the four classes during the week to create dishes for the event. And woke up in the wee hours on Friday to cook the turkeys that all hailed as delicious.
The farm has been the source to feed many this year at school, to draw our community together in the interest of these great kids. Healthy bodies, healthy minds. “Should I eat this, Farmer John?” Just look at that face below, and you know that John will suggest “yes,” and that cute smiling face will agree.
