Visiting Mulberry Elementary for Career Day
Last Friday, Alegre Farm answered students questions about agriculture. It helped them connect the dots to where eggs and chicken wings come from and understand that farmers have an important job: Feeding the world.

It clarified that as a farmer there are different specialties that one can focus on to produce different products: Cotton for clothes, bees for honey, cows for milk, and plants for veggies and fruits.

It's an important job and with many farmers beyond the age of 60, it's a career choice that we can't forget. Now with so much technology and engineering, farming has innovative practices.

The Archer Cluster is doing great things for their schools!

Archer Cluster has been working together from elementary to high school to ensure quality programs for students.

A large group of teachers and principals came to Alegre Farm to hold their day long meeting.

Even with the threatening weather, we were excited to give a tour of our education stations and give them a tractor ride!

Thank you for your dedication to your community!

Always Growing, Always Learning

Pilar has mentioned that she continuously considers new and different practices that can be brought to Alegre Farm and encourages staff to learn more about agriculture. On Saturday, a team member of Alegre Farm volunteered in South Atlanta and learned techniques on how to cultivate mushrooms!
Sounds like another future prospect for Alegre Farm! We'll have to see...

Farm Camp was a hit!

We were so grateful for those who came to Presidents' Day Farm Camp. It was a day free of rain!

We had fun and enjoyed having your children embrace life on the farm. It was great to let them enjoy an animal encounter with our newly born lambs. Truly a unique experience.

Thank you for your support!
