Urban Farming

Ellie and KJ both go to a small Christian private school. We could not adore it anymore. The teachers love all things hands on. Ellie's teacher especially. She even has chickens of her very own. Yesterday her class had the pleasure of going to Jones Urban Farm in downtown Birmingham. I must say I fell in love! It's a full running vegetable farm and has chickens! At the end the kids harvested their own strawberries and made smoothies that contained 9 fruits. It was such a great hands on learning experience and made Ellie even more excited about our own vegetables growing in this summer. Now only if I could make our own yard look like this urban farm!
