Good morning! We are thankful for the Friends of Russell Farm that helped us build the donkey shelter! Sadie, Joey and Jed are happy to be safe and dry. Can you tell the difference between the 19 year old donkeys verses

Check out what our Wood Shop students have been learning. They built bird houses and a bench. For the last class, they will sand the bench and apply sealant. Lee challenges these students to work as a team to get the projects done. If you would like your child to learn basic techniques of wood working, keep a look out for the next class available in January! It is a priority to keep our students safe and follow proper health protocols at Russell Farm!

Playing with dirt making wild flower seed bombs was so much fun! Everyone took turns throwing their wildflower seed bombs on the nature walk in the back of the farm. They made enough to take some home to create their own wildflower garden! Thank you Ms Pam for all your hard work with the nature station!

Such an exciting time in the Russell Farm Community Gardens! A couple of our families are on vacation, they told us we could donate their vegetables along with ours to the local food banks! Last week we harvested 102 cucumbers! We counted 14 cantaloupes on the vines this morning! I hope you are having great success with your garden at home!
