Wild edibles, chickens and ducks, and a float

Our Backyard Farming series is off to a great start!  Yulia Welk led a workshop about finding plants with edible and medicinal parts on the Nature’s Garden Trail and Farmer Aaron led a tour of the poultry barn with the Pekin Ducks and the “chicken tractors” with the Cornish X Broilers.  IMG_0463

Oink!  Moo!  Quack!  The Little Farmers delighted the crowd at the Cable Fourth of July Parade with animal noises.  We also handed out 1,000 packets of Blue Lake beans for planting…it’s the Vegetable of the Year!
