Seniors Camryn Layer and Lindsey Van Horn were selected by Horticulture teacher Violet Martin to join other students on a field trip to Ohana Farms.

“We had this tree project in class, and we had to take different pictures of trees, then we had to create a presentation, and then she (Martin) was going to pick the ones with the highest scores, and ours was chosen,” said Layer.

“We got to say hi to some goats; it was really cute,” said Van Horn.

Ohana Farms is being run in an unusual way, compared to other local farms. It is a no-till farm, so the soil isn’t rotated, which can damage the land over time, and there are no chemicals used on the crops.

“After that, we got to go pick some carrots,” Layer said, “and I got feed the chickens!”

“We also helped a little goat get out of the fence, because it got caught in there, but it was really cute,” said Van Horn.

Layer said, “I just thought it was fun because I was chasing around chickens the whole time, trying to catch one.”

Neither student had ever been on a farm before, at least not one of Ohana Farm’s scale.

“We learned how to take care of nature, and how to actually look up and appreciate it! During the tree project, I would look down, and I would realize how much I know about nature now,” said Layer.
