Volunteer Farm

The day started out early and we anticipated that we wouldn’t be planting potatoes due to the torrential amount of rain over the weekend.

We were eager to work though! 
So what did we do? Cleared the field of rocks!  Lots of rocks!

While this may seem like a small job—it is very valuable.
better soil = better growth = more produce = more people being fed
The rocks also tear up the machinery which also slows things down
Here are some pictures from the day!

A “ find the biggest rock contest” started.

The girls found a big one—but couldn’t get it out.

I was very proud of all the kids—they worked hard and didn’t complain.  It was hard work!
