A journey to Wassaic Community Farms

Several of our volunteers took a group of youth from Brook Park up to the Wassaic Community Farms (in Wassaic, NY of course!). What a treat! We worked the fields and enjoyed the views and made a lunch for all to share. This farm has ties with the South Bronx - please feel free to read their website - and they sell their vegetables at the Padre Plaza Farmer's Market every Wednesday in the summers. Now they don't have chickens - yet, but we will be happy to welcome them when they do! Wassaic welcomes guests and volunteers to come up (the Metro North stops right there!) and experience their farm. C'est la vie! Maybe we chickens should take a day trip! We did a little black & white photo study. You like?
