Farm Tour at The Farm at Franklin Pierce Schools

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

Please join us for a tour of The Farm at Franklin Pierce Schools! The Farm is an 8-acre educational site, including wetland and native restoration planting areas, an orchard, and 2 acres of vegetables and pollinator habitat. The farm hosts daily high schools classes from each high school in the district, weekly volunteer community days, weekly adult farming classes taught by Harvest Pierce County, field trips and farm visits throughout the season, and a community garden managed by Harvest Pierce County that is open to anyone. The Farm’s summer student crew will lead a tour showcasing the farm’s intensive approach to market gardening using a BCS tractor and implements, a permanent bed system, tarping and minimum tillage approaches, cover crops, high and low tunnels and other wonderful tools to maximize efficiency. Join us after the tour for a pizza lunch and birthday cake—it will be the farm manager’s birthday!
