News for the week of October 8th

Rural Campus News

Farm Stay 1 Begins
This week our first Farm Stay of the year begins. We will be harvesting the fall produce and taking care of some important pre-winter projects. The students are thrilled to be hosting our second annual Halloween Event. Look for Farm Stay updates on the Land School Blog.

Class F Potato Harvest This Wednesday
The potato year has not been great. Early spring and heat brought an influx of leafhoppers and growth stopped short mid summer. But the potatoes that did develop are holding well in the soil and we will be harvesting as many as we can on Wednesday with Class F. Look for the yummy spuds at the Thursday markets! Thanks Class F!

Halloween Event Coming Soon
This year our Fall Event will again be a "Halloween Event" and we are excited to see what fun activities and games the students will come up with. Come on out to the Land School from 4 to 8 pm on Saturday October 20th. This event is for the entire Lake Country community. This year we are asking for all potluck items to feature some item of local food. So start looking at recipes. We are looking forward to one of the best potlucks of the year!

Class G Thanks
Thanks to the parents, students and staff of Class G for an incredible overnight visit last week. Every one of you came together to get the work of the harvest and the Harvest Festival preparation complete. Thank you! The signs you made are beautiful and we plan to keep them for next year!

Harvest Festival Thanks
Thanks to the Junior High students, the families and to the staff who helped make our Harvest Festival a huge success this year. Although the weather was chilly, there were no beetles, box elder bugs nor wasps in the cider. So that was nice.
