The Move Visit: Educational and Fun

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

_MG_8274The Move, a non-profit formed to expose city youth to farming, growing food and healthy living came to visit with a group of about 40 on Saturday, Oct 17th. We started out the day with moving the cows off the Back Pasture which we needed to vacate by Oct 15th. After feeding some apples, we broke up into 5 groups and thanks to our talented volunteer leaders were able to get a diverse number of projects accomplished. After finishing the work we got together to discuss the significance of the days activities and then have lunch of grass-fed hamburgers. Many thanks to our volunteers, Chis Molinaro, Yun Gao, Laura Quincy Jones and the organizers from The Move, Ladawn Strickland who also brought her mom to cook hamburgers and a number of chaperones from the Boston YMCA who organized the group that came. Also thanks to Kendall Sweeney who along with being captain of the Algonquin girls soccer team and taking a lot of the senior class pictures has provided professional quality pictures and post that have been both here and on our facebook page. These kinds of activities will continue even after the cows have left the conservation land. This is an important component of what the Cow Fund does. Anyone interested in helping out should contact me at Paul.Bourdon@lfb-usa.com
