The children have a variety of farm based activities.  002.MOV.Still004

I volunteer to do a printmaking activity where I walk the children through the farm,

we identify different types of leaves, 076
and then make 3 different kinds of prints using a press.

I was too busy to photograph everything, but I promise, there were lots of smiling children (and grown ups)!
