In the fall, we get the kids out into orchards to harvest apples. Harvesting and hauling apples makes eating them taste even more delicious!
Students from UNM Taos Kids Campus and Taos Academy work together at Taos Valley Farms to harvest onions.
Bringing children out to farms gives them first hand experience with the elements needed in farming; fresh air, clean water and healthy soil.
Field trips present an opportunity to engage all of the students senses. Sense impressions are a critical learning tool for the young student.
A deep appreciation for nature develops out of early positive experiences that allow for enjoying the grandness of it all.
Back at campus it's time to plant the garden beds. We'll update details as they grow.
