Every week day, all the kids on the farm stay split into two occupations groups, Andy's and Donna's, and do work around the farm. The groups take turns making lunch every day. Donna's group works mainly with facilities. Andy's group works with the gardens and greenhouses. I'm in Andy's group.
This farm stay, in Andy's group, we are focusing on potting, labeling, and moving plants for the plant sale. We are doing small, off-topic jobs as well, like setting up fences, but we're mostly working with the plants. Below are some pictures of us working in our occupations group.
