Organic Farm School Final Harvest Day

It was a gorgeous day at the Geenbank farm on Whidbey island. We were walking the dogs on the land that was once a loganberry farm. 

Located on one edge of the property is the certified organic farm and home of the Organic Farm School Program. Young people from all over the US attend this 8 month school that teaches organic farming techniques.

  

  
It was the last week of school and the students were harvesting their final bounty to sell to the public.

  
I chatted as they picked amazing kale, lettuce and carrots. Each had an amazing experience and were planning to find jobs on existing organic farms or start their own farm. One person was remaining on Whidbey Island to manage the South Whidbey School Farm and Garden Program.

Get out there and be amazed…
