The Washburn Agripreneur program participated in our first farmers market for the year of 2016 on July 20th. We had an excellent variety for this time of year thanks to support from Washburn Elementary School garden. Our best sales were cucumbers and beans, almost selling out.

Trellising cucumbers in the Washburn school high tunnel.
Agripreneur students have been busy growing their high tunnel crops this summer, but they've also taken the time to attend some field trips. They've traveled to three local farms so far - Wild Hollow Farm located just south of Ashland, River Road Farm in Marengo, and Great Oak Farm in Mason.
Thank you to Jason, Todd, and Chris for spending part of the day with our students!
Above, Jason talks about his high tunnel growing practices at Wild Hollow Farm, and Todd explains the importance of living soil at River Road Farm.
Above, Chris explains his growing practices for both high tunnel and field crops at Great Oak Farm.
