Springtime on a Farm in Cool, CA

TEA 7th Graders had a productive trip to 49er Farm last week, where they helped prep the garden for Spring planting. It was hard, messy work and the students even impressed themselves with how much they accomplished. But they also got to enjoy a beautiful sunset, and some quiet moments of reflection on this beautiful property in Cool, CA.
