I like to sometimes joke about the garden produce by calling it “child labor salad” but in all seriousness, the garden at the school is great. This is the school down in Antigua called Oxford, and just to clarify, these kids are in no way going hungry. The kids have Organic Farming as part of their week, and those who sign up for after-school classes come farm some more with their awesome farming companion, me.
I would like to take this opportunity to show off some photos of The Farm. I usually get my hands dirty and so am not the one to take photos… But as you can see, the few that I have are quite impressive (right??). I wish my school growing up had a little farm like this one at Oxford!
Using tires for beds and wine bottles for irrigation during hot days.
Mama Chicken! She unfortunately turned into dinner for one hungry cat. I got so attached to this hen, I was devastated…
