Life's a journey

Expanding my wings 2

Hello Everyone!

We've had so much excitement at the farm that it's been hard to tell you everything that is occurring. We have been continuously working to update the farm from painting to improving our petting zoo area. I'll share those pictures soon!

Of course, I can't fail to mention the many lambs that have been born. A few of the lambs have needed to be bottle-fed, but they are growing quickly. There are plans for a photo shoot at the end of this month, so be on the lookout. I'll let you know more soon.

And I am so excited about having Tony Gobert at Alegre Farm for our garden workshops. I've attended many of his workshops in the past, and he is an amazing instructor who is full of so much knowledge. Believe me, experienced farmers and gardeners go to him for questions. If you have the chance to join us the next 4 Thursdays, you will not be disappointed! There are only a few spots left.

Also, we have a networking event this month at the farm with a guest speaker and a delicious lunch!

The cows were ready and lined up for their picture! I visited different farms, connected with farmers, and learned their stories.

Last month I attended the Georgia Organics Conference and Expo in Tifton, Georgia.

Why?

Because I am officially one of the newest board members on Georgia Organics.

This was another step to expand my wings and contribute to you and Gwinnett County. I hope that this role will allow me to partner and provide support for more Farm to School Programs. We have many initiatives now and many more schools that are interested but need guidance and resources.

What is Farm to School?

Farm to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and early care and education settings.

Georgia Organics founded the state's first farm to school program in 2007 and continues in it's endeavor.

This work reaches our children and builds community! As we grow, it's important that we never lose the sense of community, and bring health and wellness along is great a tag along.

Have a great week and thank you all for helping Alegre Farm become what it is today!

Sincerely,

Pilar
Owner of Alegre Farm
