Farm Fun at First Annual Sunshine Days!
Session one of Sunshine days was a success! Today, our joyful participants took a tour of our organic farm, made their own beautiful garden boxes, had a picnic lunch, and then fed and pet our farm animals. We wouldn't want to toot our own horn, but, the children had A LOT of fun! (...toot toot!)
If anyone is still interested in participating, you can still sign up! Come to Crossroads Farm for the forms and submit your payment. Alternatively, you could email firstname.lastname@example.org to have the forms emailed to you and you can then submit your payment through our paypal portal.
Take a look at some of the beautiful garden boxes we made!
These are the faces of concentration. The garden boxes will spend the next two days in our hoophouse and will be taken home on Thursday.
There were plenty of photo-ops during our petting zoo!
The birds of all kinds (geese, ducks, chickens...) were happily eating the bread that our campers bravely gave them.
One of the baby goats made quite an impression; all the attention was on feeding and petting him for quite a while.
We also had some fun feeding the sheep as well (...and the petting zoo manager's adorable dog).
Our newest arrivals-- the two week old bunnies-- became quite popular when they were brought out. We met the baby bunnies, their older siblings, their mom and dad, and their other bunny friends. The whole rabbit group was getting nothing but love from the kids!
We had so much fun today; we can't wait for the next three sessions of Sunshine Days to begin!
