Farm Animals School Visit
October 13, 2021
We had a farm animal visit from a dairy cow (and her 2-week-old calf), a beef cow, a hen, a rooster, 2 female goats (and 1 female baby goat – a kid), and 2 sheep! The farm animal visit was intentionally very hands-on and experiential for our students. After discussing a few ground rules, our students enjoyed petting, hugging, “loving on” and asking the animal handlers all their questions about the animals. It was amazing! The animals reside at Piney Grove Farm in Midland, VA.

Willow Springs will be hosting a weekly fall farmer's market starting 9/10. The students in the Garden Club/Farm to Table club will be running the event in conjunction with Piney Meadow Farm. The money the students raise through the produce sales will go towards the Garden Club and STEAM activities. The market will be set up on the basketball blacktop from 4:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. on Fridays. Parents are encouraged to park in the adjacent neighborhood and walk over to pick up produce.
