Kid Blogs: Animals at Retreat Farm

One of our favorite parts of the visit to Retreat Farm in Brattleboro On October 20, 2017 was feeding and petting the animals. They were sweet and gentle...and hungry!

We started our seed workshop by talking about plants’ needs. Some of us held up posters to show what they need. Next, we sat in a circle to learn about different types of seeds.Then went on a seed collecting walk. When we got back with our seeds we mixed them with soil and water and shaped them like meatballs to make “seed bombs.”
