Harvest Meal Highlights

It has stayed quite warm here in the Rogue Valley, despite the fact we’re into mid-October; this makes for gorgeous days on the farm. This is our first fall hosting Harvest Meals at SOU’s Center for Sustainability and we’re so grateful for the new farm site! It’s really something special to have young students see what college students are accomplishing and working on. Their eyes light up upon hearing that the farm they’re harvesting on is cared for and tended by students not so different than themselves!

Here are some highlights from a Harvest Meal at the Center for Sustainability last Friday. Happy Farm to School Month!
