Thanks so much for helping me get the word out about the event we're having
on September 25. Here is a synopsis of what we are doing.
On Thursday, 9/25, approximately 90 Third graders (and parents/guardians)
will be joining us for the Farm School at Genesis Farm (please see website).
The students have been learning about soils and plants and pollination and
want to visit a farm to add to their "hands on" experience.
Since the group is so large, we are dividing them into five groups, lead by
a teacher, and they will move from station to station around the farm.
I would really like to have an outreach person from Orange County Beekeepers
to come and set up props (with a bee hive) and talk to them about bees and
pollination and all that goes with that. As a learning experience, it would
be very cool to see the bees and what they do in a hive. I know how exciting
it is to see the real thing.
The Farm School will last approximately 1.5 hours, beginning around 11a.m
(tentative, it could be a half hour earlier). You should be done no later
than 12:30. Rain date is Oct 3.
I hope someone with your organization can commit to being with us. I would
appreciate hearing back as soon as possible -- by mid-week please-- so I can
go ahead and start making arrangements.
Looking forward to it.
Thanks so much.
Genesis Farm, Chapel Hill, NC
